The Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in the Bilski matter. It is not an overstatement to say that the fate of much future innovation rests squarely on the Supreme Court getting this one right. [...] In a to the point dissent Judge Rader of the Federal Circuit said virtually all that needs to be said about Bilski: "This court labors for page after page [...] to say what could have been said in a single sentence: 'Because Bilski claims merely an abstract idea, this court affirms the Board’s rejection.'" Instead [Federal Circuit] seemed to dust off an opinion that had been previously written to be unveiled when the time was right, regardless of the facts of the case. [Why else] didn’t address the single issue presented by the Bilski patent application, but rather opined about methods in general.
