Maier & Maier partner, Stephen Kunin, was featured in IPWatchdog.com’s post highlighting New Year wishes from top IP practitioners. Mr. Kunin’s New Year’s wish stated:
“I would be pleasantly surprised and thrilled if Congress can resolve the patent subject matter eligibility problems that have been created by the Supreme Court and Federal Circuit. At this point I don’t see a solution coming from the federal courts or the USPTO. I hope that Senators Tillis and Coons will be able to overcome the roadblocks that are hampering a legislative solution that provides clarity in the law and promotes innovation.”
A majority of the New Year wishes focused on restoring strength to the US patent system and bringing clarity to the patent subject matter eligibility quagmire created by the courts.
We at Maier & Maier wish you a Happy New Year and we will keep you updated on key developments in US patent law throughout 2024!
