Abstract Juggernaut

The steamrolling of software patents continues. Intellectual Ventures asserted two patents against Capital One that went to appeal (CAFC 2014-1506). One claimed tracking spending related to a pre-set limit. The other claimed web page customization based upon user history. Both were found grasping at an abstraction, and so patent ineligible under §101.
