CLS Bank International for determining whether an invention is eligible for patenting under 35 U.S.C. § 101; and (2) whether patent eligibility (at each step of the Supreme Court’s two-step framework) is a question of law for the court, based on the scope of the claims alone or a question of fact, based on the state of art at the time of the invention.
