John Duffy speaks with BNA's Patent, Trademark & Copyright about the Bilski v. Kappos ruling

Washington, DC intellectual property and technology of counsel John Duffy is quoted in an article, "Patent Community Applauds Court's Restraint But Rues Lack of Guidance," discussing the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling in Bilski v. Kappos with respect to the patentability of business methods. Commenting on the Court's interpretation of patentability under 35 U.S.C. section 101, Mr. Duffy said, "The court saw through this case. They saw the bad facts that made this a bad vehicle [for Section 101 review] and decided on the right grounds. Textualism carried the day." The article also noted the Firm's submission of an amicus brief on behalf of Regulatory DataCorp. Inc. in the Bilski v. Kappos matter.
