Professor Mark Lemley is quoted in The Recorder in a story about what is patentable, and specifically whether a process is patentable:

There are those, like Stanford law professor Mark Lemley, who say the court shouldn't be in the business of dividing software patents from business method patents at all.

"My view is that we can't do a good job in drawing a good line that excludes software patents," said Lemley, who also filed a brief. "The court's time and effort would be better spent . . . trying to weed out the bad software patents."
