It is no secret that U.S. Supreme Court jurisprudence on subject matter eligibility over the past decade has seriously disrupted the settled expectations of inventors, innovative companies, universities, and their counsel. With no evidence that the Supreme Court has any intention (or recognition) of solving these problems, Congress is the only branch of government with the ability to make meaningful change. For the past several months, Senators Tillis and Coons (chair and ranking member of the IP Subcommittee of the Senate Judiciary Committee) have met with stakeholders, prepared draft legislation, and held three days of hearings on the issues, entertaining 45 witnesses from the political and patent-concerned spectrum. We expect a bill to be introduced later this summer.
