ciaran_o_riordan writes “After last month’s unfortunate ruling by Canada’s Federal Court that Amazon’s 1-click shopping idea could be patented, the Commissioner of Patents and the Attorney General of Canada have filed notice (PDF) to Amazon.com, Inc. (respondent) that an ‘appeal will be heard by the [Federal Court of Appeal] at a time and place fixed by the Judicial Administrator,’ probably Ottawa. This case, called Canada’s Bilski, has been in the works since Amazon filed their patent application all the way back in 1998. Just like Bilski, the object of this case is what subject matter is and isn’t patentable — a question which will create crucial case law, making participation in this case important. Anyone looking for more background, particularly those interested in helping to prepare an amicus brief for this case, is welcome at ESP’s wiki page.”
