Thank you for your question.

The answer is currently this is still good law, but there was a 5-4 decision that narrowly upheld it in Diamond v. Chakrabarty, 447 U.S. 303 (1980) and where the dissent created a distinction from the initial ruling. Since the dissent did not carry, this appears to still be good law.

Good luck.
