Enfish Decision Breathes New Life Into Computer-Implemented Patents

In the Supreme Court's pivotal decision in Alice Corp. Pty. Ltd. v. CLS Bank, Int'l (2014), computer-implemented inventions were considered unpatentable if they were directed to an abstract idea. Since that time, many applications have been rejected and issued patents invalidated on the grounds that they were directed to an abstract idea and therefore contained unpatentable subject matter. In Enfish, LLC v. Microsoft Corporation (2016), the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals issued a clarifying decision that should stem the tide and provides an important clarification to support the patentability of many computer-implemented inventions.
