Comments

"The Chief Judge is likely to revise some of these views in light of Bilski v. Kappos. "

One would think so, but, as I'm sure you're about to discuss, his recent comments don't seem to reflect that.

Oh and Tim, of course Rader has some influence, he is after all Randall Rader.

He's the Chuck Norris of the patent world after all.

FACT: Rader wrote one sentence and business methods were then abstract ideas.

Wait wait wait, I have a better one.

FACT: Rader round house kicked product by process claims and they all became less valuable.

You forgot to compare with Stephen's minority opinion for In re Bilski as well. Kennedy's opinion was not far from it; just didn't go as far.

Of course Chief Judge Rader would have influence if he hears the case and writes an opinion. This article analyzed what happens "in the event that he is not chosen for a panel."
Thanks for the comment.
Tim

Benjamen -
If memory serves, Justice Stevens's concurrence in Bilski v. Kappos also overturned the machine-or-transformation test but instead advocated a categorical exclusion of business method patents. I didn't include it because this article was about Rader's views. Some areas of agreement are explored in the second part of the article which will be posted soon.
Thanks for the comment.
Tim.

"This article analyzed what happens "in the event that he is not chosen for a panel."
"

I'm aware Tim, I should have been more clear.

Oh and Tim, of course Rader has some influence if he is not chosen, he is after all Randall Rader.

He's the Chuck Norris of the patent world after all.

FACT: Rader once sneezed and a judge's opinion on 101 changed in a case in which Rader was not chosen.

Oh, and I posted the link over at PO, but did you guys hear about the DC decision in the case of troll vs hulu? MOT was applied even post USSC Bilski.
