Patenting Business Processes (and in general)

I’ve always thought the idea of patenting business processes was almost ridiculous on its face.  So many of the famous process patents, like the one-click Amazon patent, seemed to fail the non-obviousness test.  Sadly, the US Patent Office appeared to become another victim of regulatory capture.

Hat tip to Mary Adams (here) for pointing out that recent court rulings are tightening up the granting of such patents, at least.  She links to good posts on the topic here and here.
