Ex parte Bilski --initiating a transaction is not real
Sorry folk. I'm not going to have time to expound on this one today. (Have to do that evil stuff today, you know, billable hours.) According to a recent "informative" opinion published by the Board of Appeals, Ex parte Bilski, a method claim that includes the real world action of initiating transactions between real consumers and real commodity buyers is a dream, a mere abstarction. --I haven't read deeply into it. This is just a fast & furious peek. It's a post Lundgren decision that resurrects the "technological arts" rejection. Back later. See ya.
