Summary:
The US Supreme Court issued its opinion in Bilski v. Kappos, at last. The lower court's decision is affirmed, and so no patent for Bilski. However, business methods are not found totally ineligible for patents, just this one. But the door is not swung wide open. According to Florian Mueller, this is the least restrictive decision possible, bar granting the Bilski patent. SCOTUS' decision does not do away with even one software patent that already exists, nor does it raise the bar for the future
