2144 Ex Parte Dubinsky et al 11482133 - (D) HAAPALA 102/103 41.50 101 BELL NUNNALLY & MARTIN LLP DEBROW, JAMES J

We find these claims are ineligible for patent protection because they are directed to an abstract idea.

The decision in Alice Corp. Pty. Ltd. v. CLS Bank lnt’l, 134 S.Ct. 2347 (2014) is controlling. We analyze the claims using a two part-analysis: 1) Determine whether the claim is directed to an abstract idea; and 2) if an abstract idea is present in the claim, determine whether any element, or combination of elements, in the claim is sufficient to ensure the claim amounts to significantly more than the abstract idea itself. See Alice Corp., 134 S.Ct at 2350. ...

“[S]imply appending conventional steps, specified at a high level of generality, to laws of nature, natural phenomena, and abstract ideas cannot make those laws, phenomena, and ideas patentable.” Mayo Collaborative Services v. Prometheus Labs, Inc., 132 S.Ct 1289, 1300 (2012); see also Alice Corp., 134 S.Ct at 2359–60 (purely conventional functions performed by the computer are not enough to transform an abstract idea into a patent-eligible invention).
