"The reason for my interest in the Bilski case is so that we can test the rhetoric of the Ex parte Bilski panel of 5 against the facts. They seem to imply that Bilski's "invention" does not have physicality, but rather that it is mere abstraction at its core. But before doing the deep dive in that direction, let us step back and examine 35 USC 101. It seems that too many people insist on interpreting 101 as a definition of "what" can or cannot be patented. I apologize for refusing to go along just to get along."
