Case Number: CLB0197

Date: 06.02.2008

Citation: No. 2008-1496

The Board found a “computer-implemented method” claim patentable because the claim recited a process that employs one of the other statutory categories, e.g., a particular apparatus and not a generic computing device. The Board found a “computer-implemented system” claim not patentable because the claim did not recite a particular machine or particular apparatus, but was instead directed to every substantial practical application of an abstract idea.
