Key Harvard/Princeton game to be played at Yale!

The New York Times notes that Saturday’s[March 12, 2011] one-game playoff between Harvard and Princeton to decide which team will receive the Ivy League’s automatic berth to the N.C.A.A. tournament has been moved to a neutral site: Yale.

So local Yalies can root against both of their hated rivals at the same time in one game? Could both lose? Do Yale people do the halftime show?

The Ivy League was formed in 1956, and this is the first time Harvard has shared in the Ivy basketball crown.

In the realm of patent reform, of the S.23 bill, the New York Times writes:

It is uncertain whether the House bill will contain many of the Senate bill’s changes in litigation procedures, like the post-grant review … A consortium of technology and computer companies are already lobbying House members to resist addressing procedures to re-examine patents in their bill.

Post-grant review is not a change in "litigation procedure." Current law has a procedure to re-examine issue patents, which procedure was created AFTER the last major patent act (1952).
