Partner George Beck was quoted in an Intellectual Property Magazine article published on June 20, 2014, titled “Reaction to Alice v CLS Bank: Decision Sends ‘Ripples’ Through Multiple Industries.” The article featured reactions from attorneys to the U.S. Supreme Court decision in Alice Corporation v. CLS Bank International. The ruling held that because Alice Corp’s claims to computer-implemented inventions are drawn to a patent-ineligible abstract idea, they are ineligible for a patent under Section 101 of the U.S. Patent Act. Beck highlighted how the judgment may apply to other patents that arguably are drawn to abstract ideas or laws of nature.
