Summary:
In essence, it seems to be saying (if I’ve got my legalese option on Babelfish working properly) that in these particular cases (where Google’s patents are at stake), it is the opinion of the US patent office that unless a software patent is particular to a unique machine that physically transforms it or if the software in question only works on some proprietary platform, it isn’t unique enough to patent.
