Sanity pokes its tiny head up above ocean of insanity

At long last, a sign of hope.

In a break from a constant stream of insanities, the Fed. Cir. steps back and takes a more detailed look at preemption and specificity in McRO, Inc. v. Bandai

"It is the incorporation of the claimed rules, not the use of the computer, that “improved [the] existing technological process” by allowing the automation of further tasks. ....

"Further, the automation goes beyond merely "organizing [existing] information into a new form" or carrying out a fundamental economic practice. Digitech, 758 F.3d at 1351; see also Alice, 134 S. Ct. at 2356. The claimed process uses a combined order of specific rules that renders information into a specific format that is then used and applied to create desired results: a sequence of synchronized, animated characters. While the result may not be tangible, there is nothing that requires a method "be tied to a machine or transform an article" to be patentable. Bilski, 561 U.S. at 603 (discussing 35 U.S.C. § 100(b)). The concern underlying the exceptions to § 101 is not tangibility, but preemption. Mayo, 132 S. Ct. at 1301.

SciAm editors decry Anti-AmSci Politics

In a recent editorial (We hold these ___ to be self-Evident), the editors of the Scientific "American" noted the horrifying future that the "American" nation faces on account of our political climate changing to become ever more anti-American-Science.

They home attention on the twit-err following population.
But what about the Judiciously Anti-Science Judiciary?

What about the fact that our Supreme Court makes up its Medieval "mind" not on the basis of scientific "evidence" but rather on the basis of peeling banana tree stories out of the unsworn/ un-peer-reviewed profferings of amicus briefs? (See top of pg. 20 here.)

What about that our Supreme Court has self-anointed themselves as the Spiritual Guardians of the Lego tGruth "building blocks" of scientific understanding, progress and unassailable Laws "of Nature"?

What about that our Supreme Court has self-devined themselves as the premiere finders of the witchcraft in claims "directed to" the abstractitude and ultimate keepers of the "something more" balance scale?

Yes they tread carefully amongst us while stealthily destroying what little may be left of American Science.

Post Scripts:
Despite US Constitution saying Government should "secure" rights for inventors (Art. 1, Sect. 8, Clause 8), inventor hate site says there is "Great News: Government screws inventors coming and going"

How many ineligible dancing trolls? My count same as your count.

How many ineligible dancing trolls are on the head of your pin?

That is the question.

According to the Appistry II judge, his count is the same as that of the Appistry I judge.

Bird brains of a feather coo together.

That is so reassuring.

Reciting Reality is a 'Dirty Trick'

"Watch out for these dirty tricks," warns
this anti-patents site.

Apparently, if a computer is used to control an industrial process (e.g. curing rubber) then such a "computer implemented" (CII) reality-transforming process is a "dirty trick".

Apparently, if a computer is used to convert ultrasonic echoes into human recognizable information (e.g. baby's first image) then such a "computer implemented" (CII) reality-revealing process is a "dirty trick".

Apparently, if a computer is used to determine if a vehicle operator is impaired (e.g. Vehicle Intelligence and Safety v. Mercedes-Benz) then such a "computer implemented" (CII) reality-revealing process is a "dirty trick".

Apparently, if a computer is used to determine real time reliability of a complex electric power grid (e.g. ELECTRIC POWER GROUP, LLC v. ALSTOM S.A ) then such a mere "computer implemented" (CII) reality-revealing process is a "dirty trick".

Remember. Don't let them fool you with facts and reality.
Inventing is an evil Satanic ritual and must be stopped.

Welcome Russcinites, Dah it is true

Recently this site has seen a "serge" (surge) of visits from Mother Russia.

I have no idea why. Maybe they are asking themselves:
Can the Yanks be so dumb that they are dismantling their own patent system?

Yes (Dah), Russcinites, it is true.
We in America have "supreme" fearless leaders who believe all computer stuff is "generic".

Our leaders do indeed believe that all technical people are also "generic".
Just find any random coffee drinking one at a Silicon Valley java bar.
Give them your abstract "idea".
Mutter the magic words, "Apply it".
And it shall be so.

Right after the weekend.
Because it should take no more time than that to convert any and all "ideas" into "code" popped into a "generic" computing device and thus instantly made available for the consumer market to consume and enjoy per our "free" market dynamics. (Oh by the way, you don't have to pay the java drinking scriptor for his or her efforts. They are more than glad to give of themselves for the greater good of the marketplace.)

Which is why the evil patent privileges should not be given to them who pursue trivial "ideas".
Because it is so trivial and simple you see.
Like King Tut and his abacus man you see?
What can't you get through your legally incompetent mind about that?
Everything is fundamental economic fundamentalism that is easily carried forward into the computer age by the magic muttering of "Apply it".

And for that reason, no soup or patents for you.

Dah, it is true.

Or merely with paper and pencil

According to some know-it-all judges, things done merely with paper and pencil constitute abstract idea, no different than what one does with one's "mind".

A slide rule made out of paper with pencil markings is merely an "abstract idea."

A flying contraption that can deliver messages is merely an "abstract idea."

Whitewash Powder Stuff for Washington Whigs

New patent deform must be fresh abrew in the air.

Appears it is time to tell tall tales of how the Alice pill made one small business man ten feet tall while other pills did nothing at all.
Don't believe it?
Go ask Alice (when she was small).

Supreme Court’s Alice decision protected my small businesses from patent trolls
