The letter comes as Tillis has promised to focus more on patent eligibility by bringing it up when confirming former USPTO Andrei Iancu's replacement and by filing amicus briefs at the U.S. Supreme Court. "Our patent eligibility jurisprudence is in shambles," Tillis said at a January event. "The fact that we have courts saying a garage door opener is an abstract idea and that innovative diagnostic tests are just laws of nature is bewildering to me. If we do not provide great clarity and consistency in this area of law, America will lose the 21st century innovation race."

Justices Told Fed. Circ. 'Crying Out' For '101 Patent Eligibility Help
"The Federal Circuit sent increasingly blurred messages to litigants and inventors," Ameranth Inc. said in another brief. "Today, when the fate of patent claims worth millions or billions of dollars hang in the balance, the outcome depends on which side of the 6-6 American Axle divide comprises the panel majority in your case. To inventors and litigants, that becomes a very expensive, very perilous coin flip."
Ameranth, which had its own patent invalidated under Section 101, asked, "How can inventors meet a standard that even the ultimate arbiters of patent eligibility cannot articulate and apply uniformly?"

Ameranth is a small development company founded 25 years ago and still led by its principal inventor. It has seen long issued and successfully licensed patents, representing true innovation that the industry recognized, retroactively eviscerated under standards and procedures recently created by district courts and the Federal Circuit. When first introduced, Ameranth’s inventions for mobile-wireless ordering and payment processing in restaurants were hailed as almost like science fiction and “poised to become the industry standard.” Rita Gunther McGrath and Ian C. MacMillan, Market Busters: 40 Strategic Moves that Drive Exceptional Business Growth, Harvard Bus. School Press 34-35 (2004). See 4 Wireless Finds a Welcome in Hospitality, Bloomberg Businessweek (Feb. 8, 2004), https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2004-02-08/wireless-finds-a-welcome-in-hospitality (“not quite Star Trek”). Key luminaries in the field recognized Ameranth’s scientific achievements. In nominating Ameranth for one on the many honors it was awarded, Bill Gates put it succinctly: “Ameranth is one of the leading pioneers of the information technology age for the betterment of mankind.” CISION PR Newswire, “Ameranth Significantly Expands Enforcement of Its Patented 21st Century Communications™ Web/Wireless Data/Display Synchronization Inventions,” (July 2 2012), https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/ameranth-significantly-expandsenforcement-of-its-patented-21st-centurycommunications-webwireless-datadisplaysynchronization-inventions-161049605.html. Numerous patents issued. Ameranth’s inventions began to revolutionize the restaurant and hospitality industries. But years later, innovations that leading minds with keen understanding of the relevant science had lauded as pioneering technology were deemed by courts applying new standards of patent eligibility to be merely conventional and invalid. The world of innovation and invention changed when the Federal Circuit started interpreting this Court’s §101 decisions, especially Alice Corp. v. CLS Bank Int’l, 573 U.S. 208 (2014). Pioneering inventions that had been—and should have continued to be—protected by their duly issued patents became vulnerable to claims of invalidity. Scientific advances 5 praised as breakthroughs by the most knowledgeable people in their fields were now subject to losing patent protection as alleged mere abstractions. Often, that protection was lost. Too often.

Ameranth Files Strong Request for Reconsideration of Unfair and Unjust Domino’s Exceptional Case Ruling
Click here for PDF version
INTRODUCTION: Plaintiff Ameranth, Inc., respectfully requests reconsideration of the Court’s February 5, 2021 Order Granting in Part Defendants’ Second Renewed Motion to Declare Case Exceptional and Award Attorney Fees and Non-Taxable Costs (the “Order”). This Motion is brought on the grounds that reconsideration is justified to correct multiple manifest errors of law and fact upon which the Order is based in order to prevent serious injustice, as discussed herein.
OVERVIEW: An exceptional case determination must be made in consideration of “the totality of the circumstances ….” Octane Fitness, LLC v. ICON Health & Fitness, Inc., 572 U.S. 545, 554 (2014). This encompasses considerations of both law and fact. The Order, however, is based on conclusions contrary to controlling law and overlooks or disregards material facts, meriting reconsideration.

‘Moreover, currently awaiting a decision from the Supreme Court on a petition for certiorari that may greatly alter the landscape of §101 challenges. As noted in a concurrence by Judge Moore on a motion to stay issuance of the mandate critical of the current state of §101 challenges, “Such a rejection of the plain language of the patent statute in favor of a vast and amorphous judicial exception in which we Federal Circuit judges get to decide de novo not just the legal principles, but the application of the science itself, cannot stand. American Axle has established a fair probability that the Supreme Court will reverse.” Am. Axle & Mfg., Inc. v. Neapco Holdings LLC, 977 F.3d 1379, 1383 (Fed. Cir. 2020).’

American Axle SC Amicus Brief - BRIEF FOR THE NEW YORK CITY BAR ASSOCIATON
Click here for PDF version
"The court’s rulings on patent eligibility have become so diverse and unpredictable as to have a serious effect on the innovation incentive in all fields of technology. The victim is not only this inventor of this now-copied improvement in driveshafts for automotive vehicles; the victims are the national interest in an innovative industrial economy, and the public interest in the fruits of technological advance . . . . It is essential to restore the incentive role of the system of patents, for technology is the foundation of the nation’s economy, trade, and strength. Axle III, 966 F.3d at 1357 (Newman, J., dissenting). Judge Newman’s concerns mirror those of stakeholders throughout the innovation economy, and highlight the importance of this Court granting certiorari in order to clarify the scope of patent eligible subject matter and correct the Federal Circuit’s further expansions and unpredictability in this regard."

American Axle, SC Amicus - BRIEF OF THE CHICAGO PATENT ATTORNEYS AS AMICI CURIAE IN SUPPORT OF PETITIONERS
Click here for PDF version
“The deep divide in the Federal Circuit over how to properly apply this Court’s patent eligibility test and that court’s plea for guidance demonstrate that this issue will not be resolved without direct intervention by this Court. Accordingly, the amici curiae urge this Court to grant American Axle’s petition for a writ of certiorari.” “II. The Federal Circuit’s Misapplication of the Alice/ Mayo Framework Would Render Invalid Patents that have Stood as Pillars of Technological Innovation A. Bell’s Telegraphy Patent would have been Considered Invalid under Recent Federal Circuit Application of § 101. B. Edison’s Light Bulb Patent would have been Considered Invalid Under Recent Federal Circuit Application of § 101.”

American Axle, SC Amicus BRIEF OF AMICUS CURIAE ALLIANCE OF US STARTUPS AND INVENTORS
"The Alliance of U.S. Startups and Inventors for Jobs (“USIJ”) submits this brief as amicus curiae pursuant to Rule 37 in support of the Petition for Writ of Certiorari by American Axle & Manufacturing, Inc., et. al., seeking this Court’s clarification as to what was intended in its Mayo and Alice decisions. The decision of the Federal Circuit in the instant case, if left unaddressed by this Court, will add further confusion to a body of jurisprudence that already has proven to be difficult if not wholly impenetrable for courts to apply with any rationality, predictability or consistency. It is crucially important that this Court grant the petition and review the decision and opinion of the panel majority below."

Federal Circuit Hears Oral Argument - Can Unasserted Claims Of A Patent Be Invalidated Under Section 101

"On appeal, Ameranth argued not only that the district court's decision was improperly decided on the merits, but also that the district court lacked subject matter jurisdiction to declare invalid any patent claims other than the five that were being asserted against Domino's at the time of the motion."

"As for the three claims that had only been asserted against Pizza Hut, after pointed questioning, Domino's counsel ultimately conceded that those three claims should not have been part of the district court's judgment."
