Summary:
The result is an extreme doctrine that has damaged patent law, and allowed the patentability of elements that would not be patentable under any of the above Supreme Court rulings. For example, under the "taken as a whole" doctrine, the Bilski claim and the typical Beauregard claim may not be excluded from patent-eligibility, even though they could easily be dissected into an information processing step and "insignificant postsolution activity." Taken as a whole, Flook's claim would be read as a patent-eligible alarm, not as the dressed-up equation that the Diehr ruling took it to be.
