Although it is acknowledged that patent eligibility under § 101 is a course filter and that disqualifying abstractness of a claim must be manifest, that does not compel a conclusion that there is never a valid basis to hold that a claim is simply too abstract to qualify as patent eligible. See CyberSource Corp. v. Retail Decisions, Inc., 654 F.3d 1366 (Fed. Cir. 2011); see also Research Corp. Techs, Inc. v. Microsoft Corp., 627 F.3d 859 (Fed. Cir. 2010) and Classen Immunotherapies, Inc. v. Biogen Idec et al., 659 F.3d 1057 (Fed. Cir. 2011).

Santarus, Inc. v. Par Pharmaceutical, Inc., 694 F.3d 1344, 1351 (Fed. Cir. 2012) (“Negative claim limitations are adequately supported when the specification describes a reason to exclude the relevant limitation. Such written description support need not rise to the level of disclaimer. In fact, it is possible for the patentee to support both the inclusion and exclusion of the same material.”).

With respect to the judicially created “abstract idea” exception, the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit recently stated that it “does ‘not presume to define ‘abstract’ beyond the recognition that this disqualifying characteristic should exhibit itself so manifestly as to override the broad statutory categories of eligible subject matter and the statutory context that directs primary attention on the patentability criteria of the rest of the Patent Act.’” Ultramercial, LLC v. Hulu, LLC, 657 F.3d 1323, 1327 (Fed. Cir. 2011) (citing Research Corp. Tech., Inc. v. Microsoft Corp., 627 F.3d 859, 868 (Fed. Cir. 2010)).
