Here's a chance for some of the IPKat's most knowledgeable patent people to come to his aid. In the context of last year's controversial US patent decision in Re Bilski (noted IP Finance and lots of other places too), blog team member Jeremy has been confronted with the terminology "patent eligible".

* a subtly different concept or
* anything else.Can any reader please advise?
