T. Rowe Price Investment Services v. Secure Axcess

Representative Claim

  1. A method comprising:

transforming, at an authentication host computer, received data by inserting an authenticity key to create formatted data; and

returning, from the authentication host computer, the formatted data to enable the authenticity key to be retrieved from the formatted data and to locate a preferences file,

wherein an authenticity stamp is retrieved from the preferences file.

 

  1. An authentication system comprising:

an authentication processor configured to send formatted data having an authenticity key to a client, wherein the authenticity key enables location of a preferences file, and wherein an authenticity stamp is retrieved from the preferences file.

Posture:

Petition for CBM review.

Abstract Idea: No

“We are not persuaded that the challenged claims are directed to the computerized application of the abstract idea of notarizing documents, notwithstanding Petitioner’s strained analogy. On its face, there is nothing immediately apparent about the data processing operations recited in claim 1 to persuade us that the claim is directed to an abstract idea of notarizing documents.”

Something More: No

“For these reasons, we are not persuaded by Petitioner’s assertion that [the claims] are patent-ineligible abstract ideas. As such, we need not turn to the second step in the Mayo framework to look for additional elements that can transform the nature of the claim into a patent-eligible application of an abstract idea.”
