Welcome to Skilled in the Art. Remember the Saturday Night Live skits that would end with a confused Gilda Radner saying, “Never mind!” I feel like that’s what we got from the International Trade Commission today.

But an administrative law judge ensured that they’ll be confronted with the issue again, as soon as this summer. I’ve also got some thoughts on the latest patent suit involving medical diagnostics, and the European Parliament’s bold step on copyright law. As always you can email me your thoughts and follow me on Twitter.
