1634 Ex Parte Cao et al 13675685 - (D) FLAX 101/112(2)/102/double patenting Riverside Law LLP SISSON, BRADLEY L

In analyzing patent eligibility questions under 35 U.S.C. § 101, the Supreme Court instructs us to “first determine whether the claims at issue are directed to a patent-ineligible concept.” Alice Corp. Pty Ltd. v. CLS Bank Int’l, 134 S. Ct. 2347, 2355 (2014). However, the Supreme Court “has not established a definitive rule to determine what constitutes an ‘abstract idea’” for the purposes of step one. See Enfish, LLC v. Microsoft Corp., 822 F.3d 1327, 1334 (Fed. Cir. 2016) (citing Alice, 134 S. Ct at 2357). ...

Taking up the first step of the patent-eligibility analysis, we find claim 1 is not directed to an abstract idea. Per the Supreme Court’s holding in Diehr, claims are patent eligible under § 101 “when a claim containing a mathematical formula [or mental processes] implements or applies that formula in a structure or process which, when considered as a whole, is performing a function which the patent laws were designed to protect.” Diamond v. Diehr, 450 U.S. 175, 192 (1981). In terms of the Alice test, the Diehr claims were directed to an improvement in the rubber curing process, not a mathematical formula or mental process and, so, not an abstract idea. See Thales Visionix Inc. v. United States, — F.3d —, 2017 WL 914618 *3 (Fed. Cir. Mar. 8, 2017).

Alice Corp. Pty. Ltd. v. CLS Bank Int'l, 573 U.S. _, 134 S. Ct. 2347, 110 USPQ2d 1976 (2014) 2103 2106
