Thanks very much for this post. The presentation is something I would never find out about otherwise and your analysis of the problems with the USPTO approach is very helpful. My own view is that Bilski is a mess. They wanted to step back on business method patents, which is fine in itself, but the majority opinion is an incoherent hodge podge of doctrines that will have unintended consequences well outside the business methods area. (I can't blame the CAFC - the incoherence starts with the USSC computer trilogy.) From your post, it looks like we're already seeing the beginning.
