Black Duck Software has announced that it has been granted a patent for "Resolving license dependencies for aggregations of legally-protectable content". The patent, 7,552,093, was actually issued to Black Duck in June 2009, but it is only now that the company is announcing that the patent has been granted. Black Duck filed for the patent in December 2003.

Sounds like a good idea, but having a patent for it, makes me think the patent office needs smarter morons.
