Enfish – Alice and 101

Still slowly migrating old posts.

The recent Enfish decision provides a “true positive” for patent claims satisfying the 101 subject matter requirements (emphasizing the often neglected first part of the two-part test).

Practically, this doesn’t change much in terms of filing strategy from what I’ve suggested in the past.  But it does provide some more structure to Examiner interviews as well as valuation discussions.
