In re Astron Clinica Ltd and others [2008] EWHC 85 (Pat); [2008] WLR (D) 12

“Claims to computer programs were not necessarily excluded from patentability by art 52 of the Convention on the Grant of European Patents 1973. Where claims to a method performed by running a suitably programmed computer or to a computer programmed to carry out the method were allowable, then, in principle, a claim to the program itself should be allowable.”
