For a while, it looked like this might finally be the year that congressional cooperation would hold together long enough to pass patent reform. In March, following up on last year’s bipartisan push, the Senate passed its version of the patent reform bill by an overwhelming majority of 95-5. The House was making steady progress on its version as well, with the House Judiciary Committee approving the bill 32-3. Just last week however, mere days before the House Judiciary Committee planned to bring the bill to the floor, vociferous dissent broke out from a number of camps. While its not clear why the dissidents waited so long to make their views known, one thing seem certain— this won’t be the year for patent reform.
