Springboards to Education, Inc. v. Houston Independent School District

In re Marco Guldenaar Holding B.V.

Marco Guldenaar Holding B.V. (Appellant) appeals the final decision of the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (Board) affirming the rejection of claims 1–3, 5, 7–14, 16– 18, and 23–30 of U.S. Patent Application No. 13/078,196 (the ’196 patent application) under 35 U.S.C. § 101 for claiming patent-ineligible subject matter. Because the claims are directed to the abstract idea of rules for playing a dice game and the only arguable inventive concept relates to the dice markings, which constitute printed matter, we affirm.
