An American judge who looks beyond the borders of the U.S.A.? Are you kidding me?

"[I]t is clear that the Chief Judge does not believe such challenges are the proper vehicle for challenging the validity of these patents."

Kevin,

I think that's a proper take on Chief Judge Rader's "additional views." Some may misconture Rader's comments about "claim drafting avoidance" and "gamemanship" for the opposite view. But I believe these comments by Rader are actually a lament that we've reduced the "coarse filter" of patent-eligibility to such nonsense.

"I think that's a proper take on Chief Judge Rader's "additional views." Some may misconture Rader's comments about "claim drafting avoidance" and "gamemanship" for the opposite view. "

Oh no, I doubt if anyone doesn't understand Rader's defeatist attitude here. Apparently he thinks that since some attorneys will try to game the system and some people in prosecution will be asleep at the 101 wheel (as they are now actually) we should all just give it up.

Once again, dream on 6, dream on.
