Summary:
Patentable subject matter. The discussion heated up on this issue particularly when Ed Reines of the McCain camp noted that McCain would "support our innovation economy critically," and accused Obama of a general lack of foresight or success in his policies. Reines pointed to Obama’s sponsorship of a law excluding some tax-related patents, which saw a quick death in the Senate, and to Obama’s support of so-called "gold plated" patents (an idea stemming largely from an article written by Professor Mark Lemley). The Obama surrogates countered, defending "gold plated" patents and pointing to other specific ideas supported by Obama on his website.
