US judges: "method and computer-readable medium claims lack subject matter eligibility"


One step closer to removing publishing of code from whats patentable:
"While none of the opinions garnered majority support, seven of the ten judges agreed that the method and computer-readable medium claims lack subject matter eligibility. And, eight of the ten concluded that the claims should rise and fall together regardless of their claim type. "

A "Record on a Carrier" ruling as what started the flood of software granting by the EPO, lets just hope that some of that stupidity gets washed away by this ruling from the US.

 Its very close to saying that code is not a special purpose machine, is abstract. Eat that!
