Please click here for an update.

Below is a list of US court decisions which have found at least one software patent, or at least a patent for a technology that involves software, valid since the US Supreme Court decision Alice v. CLS Banks.

What is notable is that the number of patents being found valid by the US courts is increasing.

I will continually update this page.
