We are delighted to announce an important update to our 35 USC 101 Rejection Subject Matter Eligibility Database. In our commitment to continually provide valuable tools to our community, we have started integrating recent PTAB (Patent Trial and Appeal Board) decisions into the database. This strategic enhancement offers the much-needed insight into how the USPTO interprets the scope of patent eligible subject.

As the landscape of patent law continues to evolve, it is crucial to stay updated on the latest developments, particularly in the area of subject matter eligibility. Subject matter eligibility is critical for both future patent applications and granted patents. By staying informed about recent developments, patent owners can proactively address potential vulnerabilities in their patent portfolios and mitigate risk.

With this update, users will have the advantage of understanding how recent precedents are shaping the patent landscape. Whether you’re considering new patent applications, patent enforcement, or simply keeping updated on the latest trends in patent eligibility, we hope you can find some benefit from this resource. We encourage you to explore the updated database and see for yourself the impact these decisions could have on your intellectual property strategy.

New Patent Trial and Appeal Board Decision Analysis

About our 101 Rejection Analysis Project

For an invention to be eligible for a patent, The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) applies a set of laws to determine whether an invention falls within one of these categories. One such law is 35 U.S.C. § 101: Inventions Patentable, commonly referred to as subject matter eligibility.

Our 101 Rejection Analysis Database is a continuously growing library providing insight into techniques used to overcome a subject eligibility matter rejection under 35 U.S.C §101 from successfully prosecuted patents. Cases are grouped by Patent Trial and Appeal Board or Art Unit to understand the patent at issue, rejections surrounding the patent, and the techniques used to overcome those rejections.
