Summary:
Further to a previous article on Abstract vs. Tangible, the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (CAFC) has now ruled on the Bilski case on October 30, 2008 finding, correctly, that this invention may not be patented. The case was purposely chosen by the Board of Appeals and Patent Interferences and heard only after a three year delay to wait for the judges to be in favor of ruling against it in an opinion that quoted The Pirates of Caribbean movie as a source for it's analysis. While others in the "Patent Community" may disagree, this Law Firm holds that business method patents have been upheld, and Bilski was a hand-picked case by the U.S. Patent Office due to it's problematic claims.
