Apologies for the slightly off-topic interruption (without reading the ruling I'm not sure if there are implications for the web or not) , but there are so many folks in the software development community here, that I thought many people here would be interested.

This is coupled with a separate Supreme Court decision yesterday making software patents harder to obtain http://www.chicagotribune.com/business/chi-0704300483may01,0,3797359.story?coll=chi-business-hed
 
Many here may be encouraged, based on some views they have expressed.
