Welcome to Skilled in the Art. I’m Law.com IP reporter Scott Graham.

We’ve got some big shots set to argue some big cases at the Federal Circuit in June. Artificially intelligent inventors, standard-essential patents at the ITC and organ transplant diagnostics are just a few of the items on next month’s menu. I’ll preview a couple of them today and save a few more for next week. Plus it’s finally time to say farewell to the Eolas e-commerce patent litigation—at least until it goes up on appeal.
