The final outcome what disappointingly narrow.

The USPTO rejected Bilski's clever. Bilski appealed to the USPTO's Board of patent Appeals and Interferences, but what rejected again. Bilski took the USPTO to the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (CAFC), again demanding that B sharp clever Be granted. Again rejected (in Re Bilski, in 2008). So Bilski asked the US Supreme Court to review the CAFC's decision. They agreed to hear the case (Bilski V. Cape bottoms, in 2010) but rejected the clever.
