Summary:
The US Supreme Court will soon hear re:Bilski which has widely discussed implications for software and business method patenting in the US. Benjamin Henrion was trying to find out where the Bilski pending patent application was published, and he ended up writing to the new USPTO President David Kappos who came from IBM. He finally got an answer from an USPTO official: Bilski's pending patent application has to stay secret under US publication rules.
