    This is interesting news, and it will be even more interesting to see what happens as a result:

    Not sure what the specific litigation was that led to this ruling, but a fallout might be the eventual retraction of countless patents for things that don't actually work, an historically chronic problem with the way that patents are granted in our American system...

    Yeah, they never should've pulled back from requiring the submission of a working model --- it'd cut out a lot of the problems.
