One thought on “GAO report on patent litigation is out

  1. 1

    Well, it tells us nothing that we already did not know. NPEs are not major issue, but software patents are, and the major concern here are the indefinite nature of their claims.

    It is good that the PTO is attempting to address the issue of indefiniteness. It would also be good if the Federal Circuit would help, perhaps raising definiteness sua sponte when presented a claim construction issue that cannot be resolved with any reliability because of the nature of the claim language, lack of clear support in the specification, and the like.
