At the time the Final Office Action was issued in this case, the applicable law stated "that the machine-or-transformation test is a useful and important clue, an investigative tool, for determining whether some claimed inventions are processes under § 101. The machine-or-transformation test is not the sole test for deciding whether an invention is a patent-eligible 'process."' Bilski v. Kappas, 130 S. Ct. 3218, 3227 (2010).

Because the machine-or-transformation test was used as the sole test for deciding whether the invention is directed to patent-eligible subject matter and we find that there is reversible error in the Examiner's related findings, we reverse the rejection of claims 2-6 and 9 under 35 U.S.C. § 101.

Bilski v. Kappos, 561 U.S. ___, 130 S. Ct. 3218, 95 USPQ2d 1001 (2010) 2103 2106
