It's not. There were plenty of patent troll fights in the late 90s. The first major victory was against the patent on music tech that lets you sample music before you download it. Huge for the online music industry.

This is a huge decision. Legitimate IP protection won't be affected. This is just hopefully the first salvo in changing the ridiculous patent laws. One issue is the insane number of process and idea patents that have been issued that should have never been.
The entire system needs an overhaul and hopefully this will be the catalyst.
