Post-Bilski Computer-Readable Medium Claim Patentable

Post-Bilski Computer-Readable Medium Claim Patentable

 

In what appears to be the first USPTO administrative decision following Bilski, in Ex parte Bo Li, Appeal 2008-1213 (USPTO BPAI 2008, November 6, 2008the Board of Patent Appeals and Interferences held that a method and system for generating a report using software modules adapted for easy modification and updating was directed to statutory subject matter:

In the analysis of In re Nuijten, 500 F.3d 1346 (Fed. Cir., 2007), the Federal Circuit considers the four statutory classes for a signal, and bases the determination of statutory subject matter on that basis. It has been the practice for a number of years that a "Beauregard Claim" of this nature be considered statutory at the USPTO as a product claim. (MPEP 2105.01, I). Though not finally adjudicated, this practice is not inconsistent with In re Nuijten. (Ibid.). Further, the instant claim presents a number of software components, such as the claimed logic processing module, configuration file processing module, data organization module, and data display organization module, that are embodied upon a computer readable medium. This combination has been found statutory under the teachings of In re Lowry, 32 F.3d 1579 (Fed. Cir., 1994). In view of the totality of these precedents, we decline to support the [nonstatutory subject matter] rejection under 35 U.S.C. § 101.

The claim at issue from Application No. 10/463,287 is copied below:  

42. A computer program product, comprising a computer usable medium having a computer readable program code embodied therein, said computer readable program code adapted to be executed to implement a method for generating a report, said method comprising:

providing a system, wherein the system comprises distinct software modules, and wherein the distinct software modules comprise a logic processing module, a configuration file processing module, a data organization module, and a data display organization module;

parsing a configuration file into definition data that specifies: a data organization of the report, a display organization of the report, and at least one data source comprising report data to be used for generating the report, and wherein said parsing is performed by the configuration file processing module in response to being called by the logic processing module;

extracting the report data from the at least one data source, wherein said extracting is performed by the data organization module in response to being called by the logic processing module;

receiving, by the logic processing module, the definition data from the configuration file processing module and the extracted report data from the data organization module; and

organizing, by the data display organization module in response to being called by the logic processing module, a data display organization of the report, wherein said organizing comprises utilizing the definition data received by the logic processing module and the extracted report data received by the logic processing module.

For hours, the secretary ignored them,wow gold hoping that the couple would finally become discouraged and go away. They didn’t. And the secretary grew frustrated and finally decided to disturb the president. ”Maybe if they just see you for a few minutes, wow gold they’ll leave,” she told him. He signed in exasperation and nodded. Someone of his importance obviously didn’t have the time wow gold to spend with nobodies, but he detested gingham and homespun suits cluttering his office.

The president, stern-faced with dignity, strutted toward the couple .The lady told him, ”We had a son that wow gold attended Harvard for one year .He loved Harvard, and was very happy here. But he was accidentally killed. And my husband and I would like to erect a memorial to him somewhere on campus. ”The president wasn’t touched, and she was shocked, ”Madam,” he said gruffly, ”we can’t put up a statue for every person who attended Harvard and died, this place would wow gold look like a cemetery.

“Oh, no“ the wow gold lady explained quickly, “we don’t want to erect a statue .We thought we would give a building to Harvard.” The president rolled his eyes. He glanced at the gingham dress and homespun suit, and then exclaimed, ”A building! Do you have and earthly idea how much a building costs? We have over seven and a half million dollars in the physical plant wow gold at Harvard.

Sometimes I have thought it Lord of the Rings Online Gold would be an excellent rule to live each day as if we should die tomorrow. LOTRO Gold Such an attitude would emphasize sharply the values of life.fly for fun penya We should live each day with a gentleness, a vigor, and a keenness of appreciation which are often lost when time stretches before us flyff penya in the constant panorama of more days and months and years to come. There are those, of course, who would adopt the Final Fantasy XI gil Epicurean motto of "Eat, drink, and be merry," but most people would be chastened by the certainty of impending death.ffxi gil

In stories the Lord of the Rings Online Gold doomed hero is usually saved at the last minute by some stroke of fortune,LOTRO Gold but almost always his sense of values is changed. flyff penya he becomes more appreciative of the meaning of life and its permanent spiritual values. It hasoften buy flyff gold been noted that those who live, or have lived, in the shadow of death bring a mellow sweetness to everything they do.ffxi gil

Most of us, buy ffxi gil however, take life for granted. We know that one day we must die,Lord of the Rings Online gold but usually we picture that day as far in the future. When we are LOTRO gold in buoyant health, death is all but unimaginable. We seldom think of it. The days stretch out fly for fun penya in an endless vista. So we go about our petty tasks, hardly aware of our listless attitude toward life.flyff penya

The same lethargy, I am afraid, Final Fantasy XI gil characterizes the use of all our faculties and senses. Only the deaf appreciate hearing, only the blind realize the manifold blessings that lie in sight. Particularly does this observation apply to those who have lost sight and hearing in adult life. But those who have never ffxi gil suffered impairment of sight or hearing seldom make the fullest use of these blessed faculties. Their eyes and ears take in all sights and sounds hazily, without concentration and with little appreciation. It is the same old story of not being grateful for what we have until we lose it, of not being conscious of health until we are ill.
