Nostradamus IP? As Predicted, Appropriations Chair Doesn’t Like Patent Reform

Back in March, I quietly predicted (in a comment on the IPBiz blog) that I “expect the House appropriations committee to kill the anti-fee diversion part of the bill.”  Today, the WSJ is reporting that Appropriations Committee Chairman Hal Rogers sent a letter to Lamar Smith opposing what he views as a “proposed shift of billions in discretionary funding and fee collections to mandatory spending.”  I hate being right.

  1. I don’t like you being right on this point either. This makes Patent Deform a complete farce.
