"'''Bilski'''" is a series of court cases in the [[USA]], culminating in a [[Bilski ruling by US Supreme Court on 28 June 2010|Supreme Court ruling]] which had limited impact on the patentability of software.  The Bilski patent itself is a [[business method patent]], not a [[software patent]], but it was hoped that the court would give a ruling broad enough to affect the patentability of software.  The final outcome was disappointingly narrow.

"'''Bilski'''" an ongoing set of series of court cases that will change the patentability of software in the [[USA]].  The Bilski patent itself is a [[business method patent]], not a [[software patent]], but the court ruling will affect the patentability of software either directly or because it will replace previous rulings which affect the patentability of software.

The [[USPTO]] rejected Bilski's patent.  Bilski appealed to the USPTO's ''[[Board of Patent Appeals and Interferences]]'', but was rejected again.  Bilski took the USPTO to the [[Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit]] (CAFC), again demanding that his patent be granted.  Again rejected ([[in re Bilski]], 2008).  So Bilski asked the [[US Supreme Court]] to review the CAFC's decision.  They agreed to hear the case ([[Bilski v. Kappos]], 2010) but also rejected the patent.
