The patent reform debate continues with commentary on Sen.
According to Hal Wegner, the Intellectual Property Owner’s Association reports that
Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT) will attempt to pass a revised version of S. 1145 in the Senate in February. Major amendments likely will not be available more than a few days in advance of Senate consideration….If the Senate does pass a bill, it likely will be sent to the House for swift passage by the House without amendments, eliminating the need for a Senate-House conference.
Whether the votes are there is open to question.
