Based on his testimony to congress he backs the patent reform bill which has nothing to do with reform. The question is will he be his own man and strive to actually fix the patent office or will he use this as an opportunity to advance the agenda of large corporations like IBM in making patents the sport of kings, stifling innovation and plunging the country deeper into debt and depression? We will see.
