I Heard it from the Horses Mouth - Attorney Michael Jakes Speaks on the Bilski Case Regarding Patentability of Business Methods and Processes
Awaiting my red-eye flight back home to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, after attending a patenting symposium in San Francisco. I feel privileged to have had an opportunity to hear attorney Michael Jakes and his take on the Bilski case before the Supreme Court on the patentability of business methods. For the non-patent attorneys out there, the Supreme Court recently heard oral arguments on the patentability of business methods and processes and Michael Jakes is the attorney that filed the brief seeking certiori and argued before the Supreme Court on behalf of Bilski.
A summary of the procedural history and background of the Bilski case is available on Wikipedia and you can link to it from here.
