‘The Federal Circuit concluded that the discovery was “a significant contribution to the medical field,” but that did not matter insofar are patent eligibility is concerned.’
WE are aghast! Now would be a good time for the CAFC and all other courts and Congress to re read the Constitution while there is still an economy left to protect. That is the highest law in the land for all federal branches AND the document from which all lawful federal authority emanates. To deviate from it is to adjudicate and govern without.
Section 8 – Powers of Congress-
“To promote the Progress of Science and useful Arts, by securing for limited Times to Authors and Inventors the exclusive Right to their respective Writings and Discoveries”
The principal questions then are:
1. does the invention promote science?, and
2. is it useful?
Insofar as the courts and Congress deviate from these principal lines of investigation regarding patentability, they venture into territory which is not supported by law or reason. It’s time to reclaim our fundamental American heritage of the protection of property before further damage is done to the American economy and job creation.
