Much of what lawyers do involves arguing about the meaning and scope of concepts that are inherently vague and subjective. For example, what makes someone’s actions negligent, or when is there sufficient evidence to prove something occurred beyond a reasonable doubt? While many examples of this abound in day-to-day legal issues, perhaps none is proving more elusive, and even a tad ironic, than the restriction on patenting of abstract ideas.
