On April 7, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (CAFC) issued a ruling in People.ai, Inc. v. Clari Inc. affirming a judgment on the pleadings that nixed patent infringement claims asserted by People.ai in the Northern District of California. The Federal Circuit’s opinion, authored by Circuit Judge Tiffany Cunningham, agreed with the district court that People.ai’s patent claims to recordkeeping management systems were directed to abstract ideas that are unpatentable under 35 U.S.C. § 101 because they claimed no more than steps that do not differ from long-prevalent manual practices in recordkeeping management.
