Yeah he asked me the other day what I thought of it and I told him it looked good to me so my recommendation was to put his weight behind it. He was like "aight, sounds good, we'll get genes next time around". I said that sounded good and here we are.

Just because they call it “reform” doesn’t mean it is. Patent reform is a fraud on America. This bill will not do what they claim it will. What it will do is help large corporations maintain their monopolies and kill their small entity and startup competitors (which is exactly what they intended it to do) and with them the jobs they would have created. According to recent studies by the Kauffman Foundation and economists at the U.S. Census Bureau, “startups aren’t everything when it comes to job growth. They’re the only thing.” This bill is a wholesale slaughter of US jobs. America.

Who would have believed it -- patent reform has finally passed in one chamber. Given the momentum this issue has right now, I'd expect that some version of the bill will likely pass in the House soon, too. As usual, however, the devil will be in the details; though I can't imagine much opposition to the fee diversion and fee-setting authority provisions, the first-to-file and post-grant issues may prove somewhat thorny.
