España: reforma en relación con delitos informáticos y contra la propiedad intelectual
Gracias a Gilberto Macias (el "Chicharito" de la blogosfera) he sabido de la publicación en el BOE la reforma del Art. 270 Código Penal (delitos a la propiedad intelectual) y 197.3, 248.2 y 264 (delitos informáticos). Un resumen autorizado en "Del derecho y las normas". Las modificaciones entran en vigor el 23 diciembre.
Aftermath de Bilsky
Muchas han sido las reacciones a Bilsky, no todas uniformes:
"When Bernard Bilski sought to patent a method for hedging against weather-driven changes in energy prices, he undoubtedly never anticipated the storm of legal controversy that would ensue" (IPEG).
"The door to the patent office should remain open to those who create methods of doing business" (NY Times)
"The scope of patentable subject matter is certainly narrowed" (Patently-O)
"despite the fact that the Bilski patent has not been granted it looks as if the U.S. Supreme Court did not kill patents on business methods entirely. The same holds for patents on computer-implemented inventions". (IP:JUR)
"the Supreme Court did an admirable job, at least insofar as they go". (IP Watchdog)
"Significantly, the Supreme Court also indicated that a business method is, at least in some circumstances, eligible for patenting under section 101" (USPTO Memorandum)
"We are pleased that the Court made it clear in today’s decision that the patent system was designed to be broad and inclusive in order to promote innovation. Strong intellectual property protection is critical to our nation’s economy and global competitiveness" (BIO).
En fin, ahora sí, puedo ver el partido con la conciencia tranquila,
