In Patentability of Business Methods, Software and Other Methods (2015 Edition), by Morgan D. Rosenberg and Richard J. Apley, the case law has all been updated to include the latest decisions up to October of 2014. It should be noted that substantial changes to the judicial interpretation (and subsequent guidelines for examination at the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO)) of business methods, software and the like have resulted from the June 2014 U.S. Supreme Court case Alice Corp. v. CLS Bank International. This most recent decision applies a new standard to such methods, treating "abstract ideas" in the same way that "products of nature" are handled with regard to patentability (as laid out in the 2012 U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Mayo v. Prometheus).
· A practical "how to" guide on the drafting of business method applications, particularly claims in U.S. patent applications
