1652 Ex Parte Realff et al 12942906 - (D) McCOLLUM 101/102 Andrews Kurth LLP HUTSON, RICHARD G

Section 101 states that "[w]hoever invents or discovers any new and useful process ... may obtain a patent therefor." However, the "Court has long held that this provision contains an important implicit exception. '[L]aws of nature, natural phenomena, and abstract ideas' are not patentable.' Mayo Collaborative Servs. v. Prometheus Labs., Inc., 132 S. Ct. 1289, 1293 (2012). In addition, "to transform an unpatentable law of nature into a patent-eligible application of such a law, one must do more than simply state the law of nature while adding the words 'apply it."' Id. at 1294. Furthermore, a "'new combination of steps in a process may be patentable even though all the constituents of the combination were well known and in common use before the combination was made."' Id. at 1298 (quoting Diamond v. Diehr, 450 U.S. 175, 188 (1981)).
