• Camp Invention Sparks Students’ Interest to Explore STEM

    Camp Invention® introduces young innovators to invention and innovation in a way that makes them relatable and fun. In the new 2018 program, campers will design a vehicle of the future, take apart a mechanical robot dog to diagnose their puppy problems and build their dream smart home. At the end of the program, each camper will bring home two personalized robots!

  • How Well-Understood is the Meaning of “Well-Understood”?

    By Stuart Meyer The Federal Circuit has now had enough opportunity to address Mayo’s “well-understood, routine, conventional” test that we should have a good understanding of it. We don’t (or at least I don’t). To begin with, the Federal Circuit cases don’t seem to differentiate among these terms. The cases also universally connect the three terms with “and” rather than “or,” but curiously most of the cases don’t seem to actually require all three to be explicitly met for a determination of ineligibility. See, e.g., Content Extraction, where the Federal Circuit noted only that the patent owner had conceded one…

  • Shadow Advocacy: A Look Inside the Amicus Process

    Paying due homage to the TV series, The Twilight Zone, you have now entered the strange world of “shadow advocacy,” aka the amicus process. Indeed amicus advocacy has taken on increasing importance in recent years in the IP law world generally, and in the patent law world specifically, as witnessed, for example, by the Mayo, Myriad, and Alice cases which reached as high as the U.S. Supreme Court (aka, SCOTUS), as well as Sequenom’s failed petition for certiorari which garnered almost two dozen…
