| Some judges of the CAFC are even patent attorneys. It is sure that 
| those "specialized" judges have a serious biais in favour of patents. Some 
| critics says that they even lowered the barriers of novelty, making easier to 
| get patents.   
| 
| This is also what a spanish expert said recently about the introduction of 
| specialized patent courts in Spain. 
| 
| So those patent judges have a bias towards the patentee, against the 
| interests of the defendant.

| Staff at the European Patent Office went on strike accusing the organization

| One of the ways that the EPO has done this is by issuing software patents in
| defiance of the treaty that set it up.
