STLR Link Roundup – April 2, 2010

The latest on the STLR radar:

  • The Southern District of New York‘s decision in Association for Molecular Pathology and ACLU v. USPTO and Myriad (the “gene patents case”) handed down last Monday, has generated a lot of commentary this week. Here’s a selection: reports from Wired and On the Edges of Science and Law; IP Watchdog describes the ruling as “inane”; Patent Docs gives more detail on the patents at issue; Patently O thinks the Federal Circuit is likely to reverse the decision; and Holman’s Biotech IP Blog takes the investor’s perspective.
  • British science writer Simon Singh (of Fermat’s Last Theorem, The Code Book and Big Bang fame) wins libel case brought against him by the British Chiropractic Association, from The Guardian.
  • From OutLaw, Google, Microsoft, eBay et al call for U.S. privacy law update.
  • Salt Lake City jury rejects “copyright troll’s” claim to Unix – Wired reports.
  • The European and FCC antitrust complaints against Google are not about Microsoft, opines The Register.
