Summary:
In the US Supreme Court case Bilski vs Kappos, the court has ruled that Bilski's business method patent was invalid, but also ruled that the "machine or transformation" test, which earlier courts had applied as an exclusive rule, was not the only test for patentability. [...] Daniel Ravicher, the SFLC's legal director said the court had missed an opportunity to "send a strong signal that ideas are not patentable subject matter" and that the rejection of the Bilski patent "got rid of a symptom, but failed to treat the real cause".
