A few months ago I wrote about software patents before the Supreme Court. Instead of issuing a broad ruling the Court merely decided that adding a computer to an abstract idea would not be enough to make it patentable. Abstract ideas are not patentable. The trouble comes in deciding what an abstract idea constitutes.
