The court evaluated Two-Way’s patent claims under the Alice two-part test for patent eligibility. See Alice Corp. v. CLS Bank Int’l , 134 S. Ct. 2347 (2014). Step one of the Alice test considers whether the representative claims, when considered in their entirety, are “directed to” a judicial exception to patent eligibility under § 101. These are laws of nature, natural phenomenona, and abstract ideas. “[T]he court considers whether the claims in the patent focus on a specific means or method, or are instead directed to a result or effect that itself is the [judicial exception] and merely invokes generic processes and machinery.” McRO, Inc. v. Bandai Namco Games Am. Inc. , 837 1299, 1314 (Fed. Cir. 2016). If the claims are directed to a judicial exception, the court moves to step two and considers whether the claims contain an “inventive concept sufficient to transform the nature of the claim[s] into a patent-eligible application.”
