Judge blasts colleagues for defying SCOTUS, allowing financial patent

The nation’s top patent court has stopped a lower court from throwing out four patents on financial software, used to sue a bank dealing in foreign currency exchanges.

The controversial opinion, countered by a blistering dissent by one member of the three-judge panel, shows that the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit is in disarray about just what is patentable. An “abstract idea” can’t win a patent, but the judges on the court are in disagreement about just what that is.
