Summary:                 

At the outset, the Court collected cases showing that “tailoring of content based on information about the user—such as where the user lives or what time of day the user views the content—is an abstract idea.” The claims further lacked an inventive concept because “containers,” “registers,” and “gateways” viewed individually and as an orderly whole were merely routine and conventional tools.
