"'''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.
+
 
+
==Origins==
+
 
+
The [[USPTO]] rejected Bilski's patent.  Bilski appealed to the ''[[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]]).  So Bilski asked the [[US Supreme Court]] to review the CAFC's decision, and they agreed.  This is the pending case [[Bilski v. Kappos]].
+
 
+
==Why is it important?==
+
 
+
The 2008 ruling of the [[Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit]] (CAFC) was broad enough to reject Bilski's patent ''and'' a certain category of software patents.
+
 
+
The [[US Supreme Court|Supreme Court]] agreed to review the CAFC's ruling (as [[Bilski v. Kappos (2009, USA)|Bilski v. Kappos]]), and the judges raised the issue of software during [http://news.swpat.org/2009/11/bilski-hearing-transcript/ the hearing].
+
 
+
The Supreme Court's ruling could greatly change the patentability of software patents, business method patents, and the middle ground of e-commerce patents.
