Bloomberg Law Quotes Chris Loh on Need for Federal

1 min

On January 30, 2020, Chris Loh was quoted in Bloomberg Law regarding the need for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit to clarify what inventions are eligible for patents.

According to the article, the nation's patent appeals court is split 7–5 on whether U.S. Supreme Court precedent limits how much it can say about Section 101 of the Patent Act, which involves eligibility. Practitioners are looking to the Federal Circuit after the Supreme Court’s spate of denials of patent eligibility petitions and a lack of movement in Congress on legislation to revise Section 101 of the Patent Act.

"The Federal Circuit judges don’t have any choice at this point," said Loh.
