“Patent Think” Retreats on Discovery of Nature, and Use of Math
“Patent think” continues to retrench and retrace after SCOTUS’ series of unanimous rulings that ended patents for discovery of laws of nature, and for most applications of math. A cogent summary of the rulings is provided in a July 21, 2015 blog post by John Conley at the Genomics Law Report. Unlike some never say die partisans, John admits the scope of the rulings and their significance. The rulings remain great (and eminently foreseeable), in my view. My perspective is wanting to see more discovery regarding the when, how and why of cancers and other diseases.
