Lawyers Weigh In On High Court's Software Patent Ruling

  • 06.19.14
  • IP Law360

Michelle K. Holoubek was quoted in an article in IP Law360 discussing the Supreme Court's ruling in Alice Corp. Pty Ltd. v. CLS Bank International. The verdict stated that computerized abstract patent ideas are not patent eligible.

"The decision is quite significant to Alice. To everyone else, there is still plenty of room for interpretation. What does it mean to be 'abstract?' We still don't know, and the court explicitly declined to define the term," Ms. Holoubek said. "I suspect we will be arguing this issue for years to come, with both sides being able to cite to this decision for support."
