This year, we have seen concerted efforts by Congress to change the law governing patent eligibility in ways that would rewrite the statutory text and rollback the effect of recent Supreme Court precedents, and we expect to see more ahead. Alex will discuss the state of patent eligibility law today, the decisions that brought us here, and the evidence showing that law is helping the patent system do what it is supposed to do: promote innovation and productive efforts by real people and businesses, not the cost and extent of meritless litigation.
