- This week in patent law class: Left my students confused after discussing Benson, Flook, Chakrabarty, Diehr, and Bilski. I’m somewhat confused as well.
- Traditionally, a patentee could seek reissue to correct problematic claims if the problems were created “through error without any deceptive intention.” The new patent act eliminates the “
without any deceptive intention” limitation. What’s the impact?
