Summary:
In a post-industrial global economy, the United States' competitiveness is increasingly dependent on information, knowledge and services. However, in this new economy, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) threatens to eliminate an entire class of innovation from eligibility for patenting --- i.e. business processes. On May 8th, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit will hear In re Bilski, en banc. The appeal follows the rejection by the USPTO of a patent application for a process for hedge fund risk management, filed by inventors Bernard Bilski and Rand Warsaw.
