In "USPTO Training Memo Lacks Sound Basis in the Law," published in Law360 on June 12, 2014, David A. Gass expands on his earlier critique of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office’s March 4, 2014, memorandum to patent examiners. The memorandum outlines the procedure that all patent examiners are instructed to follow when evaluating patent eligibility under 35 USC Section 101 and attempts to interpret the Supreme Court’s Mayo, Myriad and Diamond v. Chakrabarty decisions pertaining to patent-eligibility of biotechnology processes and biochemical compositions.
