Summary:
Inventors Bernard L. Bilski and Rand A. Warsaw said, “We welcome the Supreme Court reviewing the case. The creation of new business methods is critical to spurring economic growth in this country. The Federal Circuit’s Bilski decision is a throwback to the 19th century when our economy was primarily manufacturing based, and fails to recognize that many inventions are based on ideas not necessarily tied to a machine or piece of equipment. Prior to the Federal Circuit’s decision, the ability to patent a business method put the U.S. squarely ahead of the rest the world in protecting valuable intellectual property assets that are integral to encouraging innovation in today’s economy. The Federal Circuit’s decision represents a step backward.”
