Federal Circuit Upholds Cancellation of Versata Software Patent

A U.S. appeals court upheld the cancellation of a software patent owned by Versata Inc. that previously led to a $345 million jury verdict against its German rival SAP SE. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, the top patent court in the United States, agreed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office that the Versata patent was too basic to deserve legal protection.
