Welcome to Skilled in the Art. I’m Law.com IP reporter Scott Graham. The fallout from COVID-19 is landing on the IP community, and I have some reactions from lawyers on the front lines (though relevance arguably is changing hour by hour). Also, Techdirt’s Mike Masnick has us all thinking about “patent trolls” again, though the narrative is a little more complex than at first blush. Plus, Sequenom has finally gotten some of its diagnostics patents—check that, “preparation patents”—through the Federal Circuit. Morgan Lewis has locked down a $268 million judgment. And the Fish & Neave reunion party continues at Maynard Cooper.

As always, you can email me your thoughts and follow me on Twitter.
