In a challenge to a Final Written Decision of the Patent Trial and Appeal Board reaffirming its determination that the patent at issue -- relating to computer security and ways to authenticate a web page -- was a covered business method (CBM) patent under section 18 of the Leahy-Smith America Invents Act (AIA), Pub. L. No. 112-29, 125 Stat. 284 (2011), is vacated where: 1) the Board-adopted characterization of CBM scope was contrary to the statute; and 2) the patent at issue is outside the definition of a CBM patent that Congress provided by statute.
