The news of a delay should come as a relief to opponents of patent reform. It may be an unrealistic scenario, but considering the circumstances, perhaps Congress will decide that, in the interest of just getting some kind of patent reform passed, it will enact a bill that consists solely of provisions ending fee diversion and granting the USPTO fee-setting authority, and will completely drop all of the controversial provisions (preferably those in the House version). Unrealistic, yes; but we can hope.
