Partner Ryan Schermerhorn was recently quoted in Bloomberg Law's article "Court Split Over Driveshaft Patent Muddies Eligibility Question," discussing mechanical inventions that are eligible for patent protection.

"There's so much inconsistency and uncertainty in district court panels and Federal Circuit panels that maybe it will work," Ryan said. "They should make sure to focus on explaining not just the invention's result, but how it is actually going to be accomplished." 

Ryan added "But who knows, in five years when those patents are granted and are in litigation, the standard could be totally different."
