« Senator Kyl’s Patent Reform Bill Introduced Today | Main | BIO Praises Senator Kyl's Patent Reform Bill »

September 25, 2008



GSK's brief again exposes the sheer sophistry and lawlessness of the USPTO's position on these continuation-claim Rules. And how the USPTO is going to address GSK's arguments at oral argument with a straight face in view of what should be blistering questions from the Federal Circuit bench should be a sight to behold and hear.

What is also really sad is how much ink, effort, money and frustration has been spent by us in the private sector to bring these unlawful and unthoughtful Rules to ground. We can only count the days to when the current USPTO hierarchy is gone, and with it hopefully this misguided attitude about the Rule of Law.
