"Gust provides a chilling scenario for both patentees wishing to enforce their portfolio, and their counsel."

We can only hope.

Those claims were unbelievably junky.

The fact that "some people are confused" by Alice is partly due to your inability or unwillingness to help people understand, Michael.

If all your claim adds to existing technology is an abstraction like the content of information that is input into a text field, or the transmission of that information, or some similar species of information transfer, you've got a huge eligibility problem. This isn't difficult to understand. Why pretend otherwise?

Like I said above: more sanctions like this are warranted and hopefully there are more to come. Competent attorneys can predict how these cases end, and they've been doing so for years.
