Well, a new set of patent-related legislation has arrived in the U.S. Congress.  In recent years, patent reform legislation has been proposed, but has stalled each time the topic was raised.  It remains to be seen whether this round will be different.

Prof. Joe Scott Miller at The Fire of Genius has provided the text versions of the the Senate and House Patent Reform Acts of 2007 here:  Senate S.1145 and House H.1908.

We also suggest perusal of an interesting article on the Patent Reform Act of 2007 from the Washington Post.  This article points out the industry giants (Big Pharma versus High Tech, for example) taking sides on patent reform, and their clashing views of how the patent system should work.  A good read if you have a few minutes.
