During the three great days I spent at the California Bar Solo and Small Firm Summit in Newport Beach, I was a little out of touch with what was going on in the world, save for the World Cup.But, one evening I was able to see some reactions to the ruling made by the panel of administrative judges at the US Patent and Trademark Office. Reactions I read ran from those praising the decision to those who saw it as an example of government tyranny. While opinions can differ for many reasons, I repeatedly saw that no matter the position, the basis for it was woefully lacking in understanding of the law and the facts. I decided to read the actual legal decision. So, in the interest of helping people form their opinions based upon a better base of knowledge, let us look at what people are getting wrong about this.
