"Patenting In the USA: Is There Anything Patent Eligible?" is answered by the USPTO still cranking out about half a million patents a year. I suggest a less hyperbolic title, such as "Have more than a handful of otherwise-valid diagnostic patents been held invalid under the Sup. Ct. Mayo 101 decision?"

Well, Paul, one man's hyperbole can be another man's catastrophe.

Mr. Morgan,

It is more than a little disingenuous to pretend that the "front end" continuing to crank things out addresses the "back end" of viability , especially when it comes time to try to enforce that "front end."

You have been around long enough to know better.
