Intellectual Property Lawyer Available for Comment on Recent Supreme Court Ruling
Date:3/24/2012

BUFFALO, N.Y., March 23, 2012  /PRNewswire/ -- Jeremy P. Oczek, a registered patent attorney and Member in the Intellectual Property and Technology Group of Bond Schoeneck & King, is available to comment on the recent Supreme Court ruling that has significant implications for the medical and biotechnology industries.

In Mayo Collaborative Services v. Prometheus Labs, Inc., the Court unanimously ruled that a medicine dosing process that merely describes a "natural law" is not eligible for patent protection. Writing for the Court, Justice Stephen G. Breyer said Prometheus Laboratories' medical tests, designed to help doctors determine the most beneficial drug dosage by describing the correlation between metabolites in patients' blood and the likelihood that the dosage will be ineffective or harmful, were directed to laws of nature and therefore not eligible for patent protection. Justice Breyer cited Einstein's E=mc(2) formula and Newton's law of gravity as celebrated examples of natural laws that courts have long held are not patentable.

Mr. Oczek, a registered patent attorney in the Buffalo office of Bond, Schoeneck & King, PLLC, has litigated patent cases in federal courts throughout the United States. He has offered commentary on intellectual property issues for many national publications, including The National Law Journal, BNA's Patent, Trademark & Copyright Journal and Law360, and has published articles on intellectual property law in the Buffalo Law Journal, Sedona Conference Journal and Boston College Law Review.
