    Mr. Crouch,

    You may want to take a look at the Petitioner’s reply brief in DC v. Heller, the upcoming “Second Amendment” case set for argument before the Supreme Court on March 18th. It seems the Petitioner is relying in part on Graham v. John Deere for construing preambles in constitutional clauses. If the Supreme Court “bites” and refers to Graham, I will be interested in reading its rationale as that could have implications for those who argue that perhaps the patent laws should take note of specific technological arts that may or may not be “promoted” by the current language of Title 35.
