Great to see Director Kappos understands that different patent applications should be treated differently -- implementing this concept could contribute to increased efficiency at the USPTO. Though I'm not yet convinced that fast/ordinary/delayed is the ideal system for categorizing patent applications, at least it's a step in the right direction. I believe that the USPTO needs to start reviewing several different types of multi-tiered approaches to patent examination, because the traditional one-size-fits-all approach doesn't meet the needs of today's environment. If Congress ever actually passes a patent reform bill with teeth, then maybe we'll see significant change for the better in patent law someday.
