The U.S. Supreme Court today issued a writ of certiorari in Alice Corporation Pty. Ltd. v. CLS Bank International. As reported in previous IP alerts here and here, this case is expected to have significant ramifications for the issue of patent subject matter eligibility, especially for inventions relating to computer software and methods. Fitch Even attorneys will monitor this case and report when the Court has issued its ruling. The ruling is expected in mid-2014.
