Welcome to Skilled in the Art. I’m Law.com IP reporter Scott Graham. Today I’ve got an update on what I like to think of as Mission Impossible: Section 101 Protocol.That’s the effort by Sens. Thom Tillis and Chris Coons to forge a legislative compromise on the statutory definition of patent eligibility. They’re holding a second roundtable among stakeholders this week, and they’ve now got their own subcommittee to process the work. If you’re wondering what patent holders mean when they say the current state of the law is too unpredictable, look no further than appeals heard last week involving Trading Technologies Inc. As I describe below, the Federal Circuit is considering whether it should ignore its own 2017 ruling on the same patents. As always you can email me your thoughts and follow me on Twitter.
