The [[US Supreme Court]] made rulings in the 80s and 90s that were interpreted as allowing [[software patents]], however, none of these rulings dealt with the question explicitly. A 2007 ruling in [[KSR v. Teleflex (2007, USA)|KSR v Teleflex]] indicated that the scope of patenting was to be narrowed.

+
A 2008 ruling of the [[Federal Circuit court]] in the case [[in re Bilski]] introduced the [[machine-or-transformation test]] which narrows or closes the scope for patenting software ideas.  The Supreme Court is reviewing this new test in the [[Bilski v. Kappos]] case.
