Welcome to Skilled in the Art. I’m Law.com IP reporter Scott Graham. It’s been a busy week in IP. Here’s what’s cracking:

  • A few last thoughts on Judge Kathleen O’Malley’s impending departure from the Federal Circuit.
  • The maker of an opioid overdose treatment says that if its patent was good enough for the PTAB, it should have been good enough for New Jersey federal court.
  • All of a sudden, some countries are warming up to the idea of artificially intelligent machines as named inventors on patents.
  • Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton will defend Ford in trademark suit with GM.
