Senate Delays Patent Bill..Again

CAFC [1]Passage of Major Reform in 2014 Seems Unlikely

This morning the Senate Judiciary Committee once again delayed release of the manager’s amendment of The Patent Transparency & Improvement Act. Perhaps the committee needed additional time to study the impact of this week’s Supreme Court cases [2] on sanctions— or, more likely, this is just a continuation of the intense lobbying tug-of-war.

Either way, meaningful reform in 2014 is looking increasingly less likely with mid-term elections on the horizon.
