This morning, the Federal Circuit released one nonprecedential opinion and one nonprecedential dismissal. The opinion addresses an appeal from a district court’s judgment that all asserted patent claims are directed to unpatentable subject matter. Late yesterday, the Federal Circuit also released another nonprecedential order dismissing an appeal. Here is the introduction to the opinion and links to the dismissals.

Bluebonnet Internet Media Services, LLC v. Pandora Media, LLC (Nonprecedential Opinion)

Bluebonnet Internet Media Services, LLC (“Bluebonnet”) appeals the judgment of the United States District Court for the Northern District of California (“Northern District”) that all asserted claims of its U.S. Patent Nos. 9,405,753 (“’753 patent”), 9,547,650 (“’650 patent”), and 9,779,095 (“’095 patent”) are directed to nonpatentable subject matter.  Bluebonnet also asks us to reconsider our prior decision to issue a writ of mandamus and order this case to be transferred from the Western District of Texas (“Western District”).  We find that the patents are directed to an abstract idea and do not contain an inventive concept, rendering the patents ineligible and the issue of forum transfer moot.  Accordingly, we affirm.
