Template:Bilski"Bilski" is a landmark legal case with wide implications for software patentability. It is a broad and complex topic. At its heart lies a US patent application for a business method by two individuals, Bilski and Warsaw. This spawned a lengthy legal process, with the aim of deciding whether this kind of business process is patentable. At each step the method was deemed non-patentable, though the reasons given varied. The case is currently being considered by the US Supreme Court (as Bilski v. Kappos (2009, USA)).

Although not directly concerned with software, Bilksi is intimately concerned with many relevant issues.
