« Senator Tillis Proposes Patent Eligibility Reform (Again) | Main | Oral Arguments Scheduled in CRISPR Interferences »

August 03, 2022


Some kind of codification of the patent eligibility of biotechnological inventions is required to overcome the arbitrariness of the courts in deciding on these matters, where it seems that other aspects (novelty; inventive step) play a role in the eligibility decision.
If jurisdictions with legislation (e.g. the EPC) and without (e.g. USA, Canada) are compared, it appears that there are far fewer controversies of court decisions in countries in which the patent eligibility of biotechnological inventions is embedded into the Patent Act.

Changing the definition in 100 of process to this type of "must make" (i.e. manufacture) SHOULD BE rejected.

More Trojan Horse stuff here...
