Evolutionary Intelligence Requests Amicus Support on Petition for Rehearing

Please consider the below amicus request for support overturning an important section 101 decision at the Federal Circuit and thereby providing consistent guidance on what types of inventions are “abstract.”

Evolutionary Intelligence will be filing a combined petition for rehearing and rehearing en banc at the Federal Circuit on April 19, 2017. Amicus support would be due by May 3, 2017. 

The positions are outlined in my Request for Amicus Support and in the accompanying Appendix, along with the District Court Decision and the Federal Circuit Decision. Here’s the PTAB Decision. The patents-at-issue are US Patent No. 7010536 and US Patent No. 7702682.

We hope you are able to join our fight.

If you have any questions, please contact me.

    IANAL, but I would support Evolutionary Intelligence because the consumer of the information generated by the method is a server operating system, which is a non-human actor, assuming the method is proven new, non-obvious, useful, and fully described.

    Why the consumer of information or the consumer’s status as a non-human actor would be pertinent is spelled out here.


    I’d be interested in your thoughts about my thoughts.
