The 2009 Cumulative Supplement includes:

- A review of several district court decisions applying In re Bilski to invalidate issued patents under 35 U.S.C. Sec. 101, several of which are now on appeal to the Federal Circuit
- Updated statistics and guidance from the PTO business unit charged with examining business method patent applications
Patent attorneys can turn to this treatise for updated guidance on drafting, prosecuting, and managing a strong technology patent portfolio.
