The convergence of Therasense (Rule 56) with first to file

IPBiz received an email on 27 May 2011 concerning an allegation that certain patent attorneys stole inventions from their clients. The matter is not new, and, for example, was discussed on TechDirt on 29 Jan 2006 in the post MPEG Lawyers Accused Of Taking Inventions They Reviewed And Patenting Them

One wonders about issues relating to "theft of inventions" in a world wherein Rule 56 isn't enforced (Therasense) AND in which one has first to file?
