Mr. Glenn provides a general overview of patent law. He details recent developments in software patents, utility patents and business method patents. He concludes by emphasizing the notion that nearly everything is patentable, possibly even the business method for serving a meal, if such a method could be deemed useful, novel and nonobvious.
