supremecourtOral arguments in the Bilski case began yesterday before the U.S. Supreme Court.  Gathering from the numerous blogs and other sites covering the arguments, it is apparent that the Justices were ready, questioning both sides incessantly on their arguments’ weaknesses.  A large question in the minds of the Justices is whether the authors of the 1952 Patent Act contemplated patenting business methods. 

The patentability of business methods awaits its fate.  There are numerous blogs with full coverage of the arguments.  See IP Watchdog, Patently-O, or The 271 Patent Blog.
