Since its enactment last 2014, the Supreme Court’s Alice decision has continuously raised the bar for patent eligibility. Software innovation went up and it has significantly altered the patentability of software, business methods, and e-commerce technologies. In addition, software patent litigations have also changed dramatically.
With its range, it is expected that the Alice decision will continue to affect software patent eligibility and litigation. While it is currently improbable that the US Supreme Court will supersede its unanimous opinion, Congress has been actively considering legislation to overrule Alice. If passed, however, such legislation will still significantly impact software patent litigation.
