Supreme court already stated that you cannot patent mathematical equations. Hence they have nothing to worry about!

Good thing they didn't patent an equation, they patented the application of an equation in rendering 2D/3D images and animations.

How can a company not patent a mathematical formula but they can patent the application of a mathematical formula? That doesn't make sense. Either a math formula is completely patent free or the Supreme Court ruling is meaningless.

Also, does the U.S. Supreme Court's decision have jurisdiction beyond the United States? Hello Games is located in UK and Genicap is located in Nederlands. I'd imagine a matter like this would come before the European Court of Justice; their Supreme Court.
