Washington, D.C. partner Bob Stoll’s December 6th Law360 article “Can We Get An Administration Standard On Tech Standards?” was referenced by IAM Author, Richard Loyd, in the recently published article “Even if you forget about 101 reform, don’t forget about DC” that discusses possible changes to patentable subject matter law in the United States.

Since December 2018, momentum seemed to be building behind changes to patentable subject law in the U.S. however, after almost a year of policymaker discussions, no new legislation has been introduced.  In Richard’s IAM article, he mentions that Bob’s piece highlighted the degree to which standards and FRAND licensing could start to loom far larger in DC policy discussions, especially if China were to emerge as a dominant force in setting worldwide royalty rates and in making contributions to standard-setting organizations.
