    Edwards Wildman’s Rory Radding Weighs In On High Court's Software Patent Ruling in Law360

    News
    Rory Radding, an intellectual property partner in Edwards Wildman’s New York office, commented on how the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that computerized abstract ideas are not patent eligible in Law360. In the article, “Lawyers Weigh In On High Court's Software Patent Ruling,” Radding said, “The court’s holding does not change any standards but clearly resolves the diverse opinions of the Federal Circuit judges. This decision will impact certain patent claims — including method, computer readable medium, apparatus and system claims — that recite a computer as merely a token part of the invention. That is, only claiming an abstract idea and saying ‘apply it on a computer’ is not enough to impart patent eligibility to otherwise ineligible subject matter. Something more, such as improving the functioning of the computer itself or an improvement in another technical field, would appear to satisfy Section 101.”
