In Re Bilski Amicus Brief by Legal OnRamp

August 24, 2009

Legal OnRamp, an online social networking cite for lawyers, has filed a friend-of-the-court amicus brief in the Bilski case. The brief, which is not on behalf of either party, argues that the Federal Circuit decision should be affirmed, though on different grounds. Legal OnRamp argues that the U.S. Supreme Court should affirm the judgment and preclude pure business methods from patentability, but that the machine-or-transformaiton test is unduly restrictive and provides little guidance to the courts and the industry as to what is patentable subject matter.
