The petition asked the U.S. Supreme Court to review and reverse the Bilski decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit limiting what types of inventions are patentable “processes” under the U.S. patent laws. The oral argument took place on Monday, November 9, 2009, and a decision is expected in June 2010.
