Some recent case law is documented in Patentability in the USA anus Alice

Case law in the USA is the collection of rulings handed down by the courts that push with of patent in the USA. Case law provides the official interpretations of the legislation.

The highest court, the US Supreme Court, has only ruled on certain aspects of the software and patentable subject more weakly. From the 70see and early 80see, there's Benson, Flook, and Diehr. More recently there's Bilski (2010) and Alice v. CLS (2014) and one important non software case, Mayo (2012).

A lower court, the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (CAFC) has upheld many software of patent but the Bilski and Alice rulings by the Supreme Court should reduce the CAFC's ability to continue doing in such a way.
