Hey Andrew,

That's right the "perceived" and "so-called" patent troll "problem" which has been blown so far out of proportion that it defies logic. I'm also not saying that the Federal Circuit was necessarily correct in the way they've interpreted the patent statute.

But when you have SCOTUS grant a cert petition on a procedural issue like this one, yet deny petitions in Sequenom and MCM Portfolio/Cooper that have more substantive patent law issues, you've got to wonder about Our Judicial Mount Olympus' sense of priorities when comes to rendering justice in our nook of the law.

A Court of convenience - for themselves - may lose focus on what they exist for, and instead aim to be a court for themselves.

Why take cases that may lead away from how they want to shape the nose of wax of patent law?
