Kapur v Comptroller-General of Patents, Designs and Trade Marks
“The exclusion within section 1(2)(c) of the Patents Act 1977 stating that schemes rules and methods for performing mental acts were not to be regarded as inventions should be construed narrowly. What should be considered was whether a claim actually covered a purely mental implementation of a claimed invention.”
