Supreme Court Rules: No “Duh”

I’m catching up on some reading. The May 10th Nature notes that the US Supreme Court reached a moment of clarity on April 30th, when they ruled “that one should not receive a patent on any invention that might elicit the response ‘duh’.”

Way to go, Supreme Court!

Now, can we do something about ridiculous extensions of periods of protection on copyrighted materials?
