More discussion of patent reform

My article on patent reform 2005, sound and fury signifying what? will be published in the July 18, 2005 issue of the New Jersey Law Journal.

Therein, I discuss some patent quality issues, the proposed patent opposition procedure, and the possible impact of "first inventor to file" on universities.

My earlier paper on patent reform in the June 2005 issue of Intellectual Property Today is available on the internet at


This discusses issues in innovation and the brief of the 24 law professors in KSR v. Teleflex. It even talks about buckminsterfullerene (aka buckyball, aka C60) in the context of Nobel-prize winning discovery vs. innovation vs. invention. It also talks about the patent quality issue of Quillen and Webster.
