Conflating §101 with §103? . . . “The Supreme Court beat you to it”

In the recent oral argument of Priceplay v. AOL, the advocate for Priceplay noted that he did not want to conflate §101 with §103.  Judge Moore interjected that “The Supreme Court beat you to it . . .” to the amusement of Judge Bryson, who was also on the panel. [Listen].

This oral argument is once again directed at §101 issues.  One interesting issue was whether a claim that recites two abstract ideas can be patent eligible under the Alice/Mayo test.

Another issue was whether the DDR Holdings case extends beyond internet technology to computer technology in general.
