Ironic, I think, is the timing of this book's publication, just prior to a recent Supreme Court decision (https://www.supremecourtus.gov/opinions/06pdf/04-1350.pdf) which loosened the standard for 'obviousness', and represents a significant shift in both the cost and the value of IP protection.

In light of this ruling, the predictability of an innovation will be a key consideration for any company or inventor weighing the benefits of pursuing a patent.

Yes, the KSR vs Teleflex decision is going to get a lot of attention. I am reviewing the opinion myself this week in preparation for a review with Counsel. I will follow up if any interesting insights seem worth sharing.
