'''Case law in the USA''' is the collection of rulings handed down by the [[USA patents courts and appeals|courts that deal with patents]] in the [[USA]].
+
 
+
The highest court, the [[US Supreme Court]], has not examine [[patentable subject matter]] since the 1981 case [[Diamond v. Diehr (1981, USA)|Diamond v. Diehr]]. This case was interpreted by some as validating software patents, but this position is far from clear.  Since then, the [[US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit]] (CAFC) has upheld many software patents.
+
 
+
A change occurred in 2008 when the CAFC rejected a [[business method patent]] in the case [[in re Bilski]].  The test they used, known as the [[machine-or-transformation test]], also narrows or closes the scope for patenting software ideas.  The Supreme Court is reviewing this new test in the [[Bilski v. Kappos]] case.
