Our FEATURE today is in part a follow-up to last week's report on the SCOTUS' decision re: Oil States. Gene Quinn and his associates are experienced patent attorneys who operate a web site IP Watchdog that has an incomparable understanding of patent law in the US. It is Quinn on his Webinar this past week who said that the SCOTUS decision was "One of the most embarrassing chapters in American patent law history". He went on to say, "SCOTUS has altered the nature of patent grants without reason or authority". Key Trump Administration officials including Wilbur Ross(Sec of Commerce), Andrei Iancu (Director of the USPTO), Assistant Attorney General Makin Delahiu and others strongly support the STRONGER PATENTS ACT, a bi-partisan bill, which was introduced into the House and Senate last year which would correct the "unintended consequences" of the Patent Trial & Appeal Board (PTAB) process known as the "death squad". We provide to our listeners a brief summary of this bill and strongly request that you make this proposed legislation to your congressmen and women. Other topics include: The illusion of jobs, The Bernie Sanders Guaranteed Jobs Bill, The 200 day moving average avoided penetration, Is Stagflation a threat?, Pensions and Politics don't mix, Money Market rates increase to 1.5%, Bitcoin bounces, The decadence of DC, Karl Marx lives! and Hollywood bolts from the Left.
