The best quote is perhaps from CAFC judge Randall Rader, who says:
The experience of the CAFC is a very positive one, and it’s being imitated everywhere in the world, including Japan, China and Europe. I’m now selling it back to you. Our success experience should be a source of inspiration for the EPLA court.
This is the same CAFC that the Supreme Court of the US slapped down for granting trivial patents. From the point of view of the patent industry, CAFC was indeed a fantastic success. And EPLA would be even better… no SCOTUS to slap down an EPLA court run by the EPO.
