Neapco, the Federal Circuit split 6-6 on the question of whether to grant en banc review of a panel decision on patent eligibility seen by many as an unwarranted extension of the principle that abstract ideas, natural laws and phenomena are ineligible for patent protection into the realm of physical things. Previously, such rejections were largely focused on computer implemented inventions or comparisons of data, including comparisons used in diagnosis.
