In its 2010 decision in Bilski v. Kappos, the U.S. Supreme Court redefined patentable subject matter for business methods and computer software, but did so without imposing definitive tests and definitions, effectively leaving such guidance for future court decisions and the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). As a result, the law is essentially being written at present, and will continue to be written and narrowed over the next decade.

Business Method and Software Patents addresses the drafting of business-method and software patents in the wake of Bilski v. Kappos. Morgan Rosenberg and Richard Apley offer a review and analysis of all relevant case law and guidelines presented by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). With the use of actual patents filed by the authors, this work provides practical information and guidance on the drafting of successful patent applications.
