Patent reform 2011 over?

In an editorial titled Sticky fingers, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel nails the obvious: if Congress is willing to raid the patent office piggy bank in April 2011, then all the talk about ending fee diversion is empty chatter, signifying nothing. The problems will continue, especially with a hiring freeze and no overtime at the USPTO.

Interesting that, since the House version of the bill started circulating, the pending patent reform legislation has plummeted in popularity, so much so that word is it's now doomed. Patent reform may indeed be a pipe dream, after all...which likely comes as a relief to some.
