U.S. Supreme Court checks in on hotel records privacy case

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 03/04/2015 - 00:36
By Lawrence Hurley WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Supreme Court justices on Tuesday appeared unsure over how to resolve a privacy rights challenge by hotel operators to a Los Angeles city ordinance that allows police to view guest registries. The court heard a one-hour oral argument over an appeal brought by the city, which says the law is crucial to efforts to reduce criminal activity, especially in so-called parking meter motels that charge by the hour and are often used for prostitution and other criminal activity. The hotel operators challenged the law, saying it violated their privacy rights under the U.S. Constitution's Fourth Amendment. Some justices appeared supportive of the city, while others were more sympathetic toward the hotel operators.

Federal agency cancels sensitive U.S. patent program

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 03/04/2015 - 00:30
The United States Patent and Trademark Office has canceled a largely unknown but controversial program that flagged "sensitive" patent applications for heavier scrutiny, saying it was of minimal benefit. The program, called the Sensitive Application Warning System, began in 1994 and was meant to notify the federal agency's leadership of applications that could generate extensive or unfavorable publicity. "Upon careful consideration, the USPTO has concluded that the SAWS program has only been marginally utilized and provides minimal benefit," the agency said in a notice posted to its website on Monday night. The review came after attorneys Kate Gaudry and Thomas Franklin at the law firm Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton revealed details of the program in December from documents they obtained through the Freedom of Information Act.
