BSG sued BuySeasons for infringement of several patents related to systems and methods for indexing information stored in wide access databases. BuySeasons sought dismissal of the suit based on its contention that none of the asserted patent claims were patent-eligible under 35 U.S.C. § 101. The district court ultimately agreed with BuySeasons and held all asserted claims invalid as ineligible under § 101. The CAFC agrees with the district court that the asserted claims are directed to the abstract idea of considering historical usage information while inputting data and lack an inventive concept, and thus, affirms.
