Disposition:               

Grant of Defendant's Motion to Dismiss

Abstract Idea:

Yes

Something More:

No

Technology:              

Organizing information for display on portable computers

Summary:                 

The court found the claims embodied an abstract idea because they only relied on a general purpose computer, and did not for instance specify how to collect and transmit information. Citing Enfish, the court found the claims were directed to the abstract idea of collecting, analyzing, and presenting information, and not a “specific asserted improvement in computer capabilities.” Turning to the inventive concept, the court found routine and conventional activities implemented in general purpose computers.
