Supreme Court limits patent-holders' rights

Today's Boston Globe notes two new Supreme Court decisions that rebalance the power between patent-holders and users of technology. Microsoft v. AT&T, (No. 05-1056)414 F. 3d 1366, reversed on certiori. KSR International v. Teleflex, Inc., (No. 04-1350)119 Fed. Appx. 282, reversed and remanded, another cert. case. Note that the citation for this last one is just the Federal Appendix. First time I've cited something there. Two landmark cases. Read the brief article link in the title, which includes handy links to the corporate websites.
