    What to root for regarding CIGX

    Happy Thanksgiving! You got your No. 2. Now what about No. 1 for Christmas? Seriously, what is happening with the USPTO? Does CIGX still have patents or what?

    • The patents are in controversy in two theaters: USPTO and CAFC (appeals court).

      It would be stupid for the USPTO to go ahead and rule on patent validity, since, if they disaproved, the matter would ultimately get appealed to that same CAFC.

      I have believed all along that the USPTO matter would be delayed so as to let the CAFC go ahead and decided what it may/will on the matter of patent validity (if anything). In fact I have speculated that Star's attys' "goof" last fall that delayed the USPTO examination by 10 months or so may have been deliberate (if not, it sure was stupid) to delay that process.

      You can see what the CAFC is being asked to decide re the patents if you read the Star briefs in the private group in "Files".
