Preach it, brother. I want HARDWORKING AMERICANS FROM EAST TEXAS deciding whether my method for displaying images ON THE INTERNET is obvious in light of the prior art. And when my expert says that one of skill in the art would understand the words of my claim to cover everything sold by Google, Apple, Microsoft, and Amazon, that is a question of FACT to which those WASHINGTON APPEALS JUDGES must give deference.

That'll happen. I also don't think it'll take long for a panel to disregard extrinsic "fact-finding" that the district court found dispositive; instead, a panel will just look to the intrinsic evidence and set aside the district court's claim construction based on de novo review. In other words, they won't even bother with factual review and the corresponding clear error standard. Then there will be more hand-wringing about the CAFC defying SCOTUS.

Unlike most of the other recent developments recounted ITT, Teva is actually good news for patent litigators. Claim construction will turn into a labor-intensive evidentiary hearing.

it's actually good because a lot of district court judges have basically just stopped putting any effort into claim construction because they mad about de novo review

I love the trolls who have great patents. I hate the ones with retarded patents who are just asking for like 50k. Fuck them in the bhole.

But I'm sure it generates a fuckton of work for smaller patent firms.

Stupid IPR filing fees will ruin us though.

We could do this as a non-profit though.

as soon as I have $100K in my trading account and $50K in cash savings. i believe that is the minimum I'll need to sustain my current lifestyle by day trading.

and when i say "current lifestyle," I mean pay my mortgage and student loans, nothing extravagant.
