USPTO’s examples for patent eligibility examined

"The second installment of a three-part series examining the USPTO's Interim Guidance on Patent Subject Matter Eligibility. The first installment describes the Interim Guidelines' implementation of the Supreme Court's two-part test for determining patent eligibility. Now, we will review examples published by the USPTO of patent-eligible and patent-ineligible claims."

"When the Supreme Court issued its decision in Alice, many believed the decision spelled the end of software patents. However, the examples provide several samples of how software-related patents may be patent-eligible."
