USPTO_LogoUSPTO Reacts Quickly to Landmark 101 Ruling

Although a few minutes late for today’s PatentsPostGrant.com webinar on the topic, the USPTO has now issued Preliminary Examination Instructions on Alice Corporation Pty. Ltd. v. CLS Bank International, et al., No 13-298 (June 19, 2014). Any member of the public may submit written comments by July 31, 2014. In the meantime, the USPTO will use these preliminary instructions when determining subject matter eligibility under 35 U.S.C. 101 of claims involving abstract ideas in view of CLS Bank.
