Covered Business Method (CBM) Eligibility and Reviewability

March 12, 2014

In our March webinar, we continued our examination of CBM practice, including CBM eligibility, and reviewability of PTAB decisions related to the same. The webinar covered the definition of covered business method patent under the AIA, as construed by the PTAB, including the exclusion of “patents for technological inventions” and the requirement that, to be eligible for CBM review, the target patent must claim activities that are “financial in nature, incidental to a financial activity or complementary to a financial activity.” We also discussed recent noteworthy developments relating to stays and final written decisions.
