Ex parte Gutta

Case Number: CLB0236

Date: 08.10.2009

Citation: 93 U.S.P.Q.2d 1025 (B.P.A.I. 2009) (precedential)

The B.P.A.I. finds that claims directed to a system (reciting a memory and a processor configured to perform certain steps) and an article of manufacture (reciting a computer readable medium having computer readable program code embodied thereon) are not directed to patentable subject matter because the claims are not limited to a tangible practical application and are not limited so as to avoid encompassing substantially all practical applications of an algorithm.
