US Supreme Court’s 9-0 Ruling Continues Maze on Method Patents for US Creative Community, Inventors and Businesses.
July 30, 2010 — Winston & Strawn LLP’s Appellate firm-wide chair, Gene Schaerr is available for further comment on the firm’s SCOTUS case: Bilski v. Kapos 08-964.
“The US Supreme Court’s method patent decision appears to simply restore the status quo as it existed before the Federal Circuit’s recent, “machine-or-transformation” decisions. Given the absence of consensus on an alternative approach, I predict SCOTUS will let the Federal Circuit take another crack at this important US business issue before it weighs in again,” Schaerr said.
