As a patent agent dealing primarily in the mechanical arts, I was hesitant to assist a repeat client with a software-related invention. Mark dealt with both myself and the client, providing concrete strategies to best position the application to avoid a 101 rejection. After filing, the application was classified in an art unit with very few post-Alice 101 rejections. Thanks, Mark!
