Today, U.S. Supreme Court granted certiorari in Alice v. CLS Bank to consider the patent eligibility standard for software related inventions. No word on whether the Court will grant certiorari in another software patent eligibility case Ultramercial v. Hulu and Wild Tangent.
See Mr. Lyle Denniston's Court to rule on patent rights, Joe Mullin's Supreme Court will take up messy ruling from top patent court, and Ashby Jones' Can Software Be Patented? Supreme Court to Decide
