In re Bilski — Monday, Monday, can’t trust that day…

OK, the Supreme Court says it is releasing its Bilski decision on Monday.  Are you anxiously looking forward or dreading the moment?  To be honest, I am not quite sure how I feel about it, but I am sure of one thing:  its going to be a very entertaining day!  As I said back a few weeks ago, I fully expect business method patents to be put out of business.  The trick will be how it gets done, and the ramifications for the gray areas around business methods.  I also expect a more flexible test of what is statutory and what isn’t.  Who knows, maybe the Supreme Court will give In re Nuijten “signals” a second chance while killing business methods! 

For those of you over 40 or so, here is the lyrics to the Mommas and the Papas “Monday, Monday” — consider “business method patents” the love lost in this song:

Monday Monday, so good to me,
Monday Monday, it was all I hoped it would be
Oh Monday morning, Monday morning couldn’t guarantee
That Monday evening you would still be here with me.

Monday Monday, can’t trust that day,
Monday Monday, sometimes it just turns out that way
Oh Monday morning, you gave me no warning of what was to be
Oh Monday Monday, how could you leave and not take me.

Every other day, every other day,
Every other day of the week is fine, yeah
But whenever Monday comes, but whenever Monday comes
You can find me cryin’ all of the time

Monday Monday, so good to me,
Monday Monday, it was all I hoped it would be
Oh Monday morning, Monday morning couldn’t guarantee
That Monday evening you would still be here with me.

Every other day, every other day,
Every other day of the week is fine, yeah
But whenever Monday comes, but whenever Monday comes
You can find me cryin’ all of the time

Monday Monday, …
