2019 Revised Subject Matter Eligibility Guidance: Advanced Module

On February 26, the USPTO will be holding a 3-hour online training focused on the 2019 Revised Subject Matter Eligibility Guidelines.  [Free – Sign-Up Here] This will basically parallel examiner training on the same subject matter and will be led by USPTO trainers.  The Office has limited space, but has scheduled potential additional training on February 27 and 28.  Sign-up by February 3, 2019.

    Returning sanity to 101 is easy. Recognize the physics–reality. Processing information is a physical process. It takes time, energy, and space. New functions require new structure to perform those functions. Deener is a very good case to read. Processing information is similar in some way to grain, although it is also like an alloy in that something new is being created.

    (Notice that the anti-patent judicial activist have no response to the science. They just make things up.)

    1. 5.1

      This is the scientific reality. Any person that does not agree with this 100 percent is ignorant of science. You may as well tell us that the Sun revolves around the Earth.

    2. 5.2

      Recognize the physics–reality.


      An easy place to start would be revisiting In re Nuitjen and bringing reality to bear on that (controlling law) decision.

  2. 4

    Time t0 restore American innovation by returning to patent sanity.

    Easy as . . .




  3. 3

    Step 1: Can you imagine a practical application for the alleged invention? If yes then eligible. If not, go to step 2.

    Step 2: Imagine harder. Then repeat step 1.

    Yes, this should take two or three hours of training.

    1. 3.1

      Step 1 – if treated in an inte11ectually honest manner is neither surprising nor alarmaing.

      Step 2 – your smarminess overcomes any sense of reason.

      What per chance so upsets you about step 1 that your feelings become uncontrolled, and you any sense of reason?

  4. 2

    The Office only allowed examiners 2 hours for this training. I suspect the extra hour is to account for a period of cheering and backslapping.

  5. 1

    These guidelines are a sh tshow and Iancu is a fraud. Thankfully he won’t be around much longer but history will remember him as the Re pu k k ke @ h0le who illegally created a giant looph0le so his rich buddies could file more junk. Of course he’ll be repaid handsomely for that.

    And David “Super Concerned About Admin Overreach” Boundy will sit on his hypocritical behind and play with himself, just as everyone knew he would.

    What a farce.

    1. 1.1

      Magic boy, please tell us about the magic structure again. How is it that computers are able to have new functions without new structure?

      1. 1.1.1

        Your question is at the heart of the Grand Hall experiment.

        That experiment is what, 6 years old now?

        Malcolm has never attempted to engage that in any sense of inte11ectual honesty.

        He will denigrate it, v0m1t mindless ad hominem at it, Accuse Others of all types of malfeasance as to his “views and defenses” and what he has said — but he has NOT “said” anything directly on point with that experiment, NOR WILL HE, as to engage that experiment is to admit what we both know would be the end of Malcolm’s tired curse-ade.
