Dennis has provided detailed analyses of most of these cases; this article entitled “Software Patents are Crumbling Thanks to the Supreme Court, provides a nice high-level overview, including a very telling chart, summarized thus:
The 14 patents the courts invalidated on subject matter grounds in 2013 was a record for recent years (such decisions were rare in the 1990s and early 2000s). And this chart reflects decisions on all types of patents, not just software patents. With 11 software patents invalidated in just the last three months, the courts are on track to blow away last year’s record with software patent cases alone. So this is the most hostile the courts have been to software patents in at least two decades.
Judge Moore was right in CLS, it seems. Next industry on the chopping block: Biotech, in Ariosa (discussed by Dennis below).
