Today (June 28, 2010), the United States Supreme Court issued its long-awaited opinion on the Bilski case (No. 08-964) involving the patentability of business method patents. The decision affirms the specific holding of the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, but notes that the "Machine or Transformation Test" is not the only test that may be used to determine whether a business method is patetable under 35 U.S.C. Section 101. This is a very significant holding that has widespread impact on large companies as well as individual entrepreneurs. If you would like more information on how this case may effect you and your innovations, please let me know.
