The Economy of Ideas | WIRED
Intellectual property law cannot be patched, retrofitted, or expanded to contain digitized expression any more than real estate law might be revised to cover the allocation of broadcasting spectrum (which, in fact, rather resembles what is being attempted here). We will need to develop an entirely new set of methods as befits this entirely new set of circumstances.

Supreme Court will weigh in on troll-killing patent-review process | Ars Technica
High court could wipe out a powerful tool to invalidate bad patents, or endorse it.
The US Supreme Court will soon weigh the constitutionality of "inter partes reviews," a procedure that has been hailed by many in the tech sector as one of the most effective ways of weeding out bad patents.
The Supreme Court has often overturned Federal Circuit rulings in recent years, and that pattern has generally led to rulings that are praised by opponents of so-called "patent trolls," a colloquial term for non-practicing entities—the licensing shops that file the majority of patent lawsuits. But if the Supreme Court continues that pattern in one of its next cases, it could actually result in the wholesale elimination of one of the most powerful tools for fighting patent trolls.

Supreme Court Ends Texas’ Grip On Patent Cases | Electronic Frontier Foundation
Today the Supreme Court issued a decision that will have a massive impact on patent troll litigation. In TC Heartland v. Kraft Foods, the court ruled that patent owners can sue corporate defendants only in districts where the defendant is incorporated or has committed acts of infringement and has a regular and established place of business. This means that patent trolls can no longer drag companies to distant and inconvenient forums that favor patent owners but have little connection to the dispute. Most significantly, it will be much harder for trolls to sue in the Eastern District of Texas.

Apple patent hints at improvement to let Siri recognize specific voices | iLounge News
A new Apple patent spotted by Patently Apple would train Siri to recognize specific voices, creating the potential to limit who the digital assistant recognizes and add new controls. Once configured, a customized combination of a specific phrase and a user’s voice—which Apple’s patent refers to as a “lexical trigger”—would be required to get Siri to respond. Current voice-activated digital assistants respond to specific speech, but not to specific speakers, creating circumstances where a user’s request can be picked up and acted upon by other devices in earshot. In addition to limiting that type of confusion, the change could allow users to place restrictions on everything from who can use Siri’s search on an unattended iPhone to who is allowed to rent movies from an Apple TV.
