    Some software patents probably took a big hit today, with SCOTUS ruling 9-0 that simply performing an otherwise known procedure but adding "on a computer" was not patentable.

    PatentlyO has put up an article

    EDIT: Looks like at least one patent lawyer who also runs a high-profile blog, Gene Quinn, is mighty irritated at today's ruling.

    The internal Samsung documents comparing Apple's solution to their own solution were not built into Android but were added by Samsung.
