Below are briefs submitted to the US Supreme Court for the case Alice Corporation Pty. Ltd. (Petitioner) v. CLS Bank International, et al.


[edit] Briefs for abolishing software patents

[edit] To be checked - might be good

EFF's brief 
Note: None of EFF's public campaigns support the complete abolition of software patents, but their amicus briefs are surprisingly anti-swpat. I'll have to read this carefully to check exactly what they've suggested.
Newegg and other retailers 
Newegg and associates argue that a bright line test to eliminate business method patents is the most important thing so that businesses would not have to litigate beyond summary judgement. Apparently retailers consider the expense of trial the key weapon of trolls, regardless of the chances of eventual victory.
Public Knowledge
Prof. Robin Feldman
Maybe, but the table of contents makes me doubt...

[edit] Briefs not against abolishing software patents

Trading Technologies
Alice (the patent aggressor in this case)
Proove Biosciences, Inc. 
Strongly pro-software-patents. Says patents should be examined "as a whole" (wording from the Diehr ruling), which means a combination of a computer and an abstract idea, as a whole, is no longer an abstract idea.
