Summary:
In a ruling issued Tuesday, Judge T. John Ward of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas wrote that Sun had not proven that Versata's patents are invalid and that as he interprets the In re Bilski ruling, it does not necessarily apply to software patents. [...] Sun argued that Versata's patents do not satisfy the machine portion of the test because they are simply algorithms that can be performed entirely within the human mind or by using pencil and paper, and that the inclusion of language about computers in the patent is insufficient to tie the methods to a particular machine.
