This case has been called the Citizens United of products, but this time the Supreme Court actually came down on the side of the people instead of the corporations.

I didn’t expect this result, but the Supreme Court just ruled in favor of consumers in the Impression v. Lexmark case, which basically says companies can’t enforce US patent rights abroad–the result of which means we’ll have cheaper foreign-manufactured generic drugs and, yes, cheaper ink cartridges.
