Patents in the Supreme Court: Bilski v. Kappos – MP3
Running Time: 01:34:33


  • Prof. John F. Duffy, George Washington University Law School
  • Prof. David S. Olson, Boston College Law School
  • Moderator: Prof. Adam Mossoff, George Mason University School of Law

In this panel podcast — it was sort of a debate, but really more of a friendly discussion — Professors John Duffy and David Olson discuss the meaning and implications of the Bilski decision.  As you probably know, these two professors are highly qualified to be discussing the Bilski decision, as both of them wrote or joined briefs in the case and wrote on it in the popular press, on blogs and in law journals.  In fact, Professor Duffy even participated in oral argument before the en banc panel of the Federal Circuit.  Confirming their important contributions to this area of patent law, Justice Stevens cited to law journal articles by both of these scholars in his in-depth concurring opinion.
