Welcome to Skilled in the Art, the IP briefing where the reader is always sovereign. I’m Law.com reporter Scott Graham, and I will do my best not to affront your dignity. As you can probably tell, I have sovereign immunity on the mind, now that the Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe has asked the U.S. Supreme Court to rule that it should be immune from America Invents Act proceedings. I have a quick take below, plus a peek at the tribe’s alternate argument at the Patent Trial and Appeal Board. As always you can email me your thoughts and follow me on Twitter.
