This was a good analysis. The recent article by Stephen McBride and Michael D. West "The Intersection Of Octane Fitness And Alice" also notes a “double whammy” danger for suits like this. The suing patent owner can lose on Alice-101 AND be made to pay the defendants attorney fees! [Unless they had a viable counter-argument to the Alice 101 motion.]
[Fortunately most suits disposed of on that basis are disposed of early on, before either party has been subjected to a lot of discovery or trial preparation costs running up recoverable attorney fees.]
