Wow, I'm just surprised that we can point to something that the Bush administration did right.

This is saddening. Even though I didn't expect Obama's administration to make any positive changes in IP rules, I also didn't expect them to make things worse.

Why not? He's a politician. Politicians always make things worse.
No one should support that. It's bad for the patent holder, who's patent validity fluctuates with every new appointee and it's bad for the rest of us who just want the absurdity flushed out of the patent system all together. I have written about Obama in rearguards to his misguided stance on IP Patents, specifically referring to the Bliski review.

Bliski is a great chance for the USSC to restore sanity to the Patent system. With one fell swoop of their pen they may declare that "process is not patentable subject matter" With that, the bulk of the oppressive unjust monstrosity that has become our patent system will fade into history.

Of course, Obama feels that it's best to let the process patent stand when applied to using a computer or machine. This is also the stance of the legal lobby (gee I wonder why?) .... he is a lawyer after all :(.
