BIND Patents

Unleashed Informatics, the spin-off successor to Blueprint, has announced that it is going to enforce its patent on a "system for electronically managing, finding, and/or displaying biomolecular interactions." Three of my 49X projects were with Blueprint---we built testing infrastructure, a SOAP interface, and a graph search engine for their flagship biomolecular interaction database---and several worked for Blueprint at various times. I'll be interested to see how broadly they try to apply their patent, and how much good it does them.
