Woe onto he who rolls
into the wrong panel on the CAFC.
To some judges, anything that smells of software
is no better than that which stenches of mendacity ... or pornography ... or death (death to all software IP they say!).
T'is the offensive smell of mendacity and abstractness.
They know it when they sniff it.
CYBERFONE SYSTEMS v. CNN INTERACTIVE GROUP
“There ain’t nothin’ more powerful than the odor of mendacity …You can smell it. It smells like death” --Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (Tennessee Williams)
Death to your software patent if the dice roll you into Judge Lourie's panel.
"The “telephone” recited in claim 1 is not a specific machine, and adds nothing of significance to the claimed abstract idea. ... We agree with the district court that the ’060 patent claims ineligible subject matter—an abstract idea—and that the patent is invalid under § 101."
I want to make this a direct shoe machine to shoe machine personal call.
What? Not specific enough?
Just as I suspected. You must be an agent of KAOS,
a secret Luddite organization hell bent on sending America back
to the 18th Century.
