BSG Tech v. BuySeasons, Inc. (Fed. Cir. 2018) On August 15, 2018, the Federal Circuit found BSG’s patents to be an “abstract idea” directed to a “self-referencing generic index” for organization information stored in a database regarding automobile classification (e.g., used vehicle, sports utility vehicle, etc.) based on “relative historical usage” (e.g., popularity of automobile models by prior users of the system). The claims failed to recite “something more” than “fundamental, long-prevalent practice or a well-established method of organizing activity.”  Thus, the Federal Circuit affirmed the district court’s summary judgment of patent ineligibility under § 101.
