Sounds to me like a bunch of incompetent bozos allowing another group of incompetent bozo PR people influence over what needs to be done.

This kind of nonsense is why we can't have nice things.

Oh and lest we forget the commerce sec. all up ins the middle of it making a political move.

I'm all for increased efficiency and cross-border collaboration and cooperation. One difficulty, however, is that some of the attempts at harmonization in the U.S. create provisions that potentially conflict with long-standing US law and/or tradition. The House version of the current patent reform bill presents just one example of this. Retention of national sovereignty is a big issue in harmonization, and it still hasn't been adequately addressed, in my opinion.
