The Bilski Oral Argument

The Bilski case has understandably generated an enormous wealth of commentary, including eighty-plus amicus briefs, dozens of thoughtful articles, and hundreds of blog posts, CLE seminars, and the like. Here at IP Colloquium, we therefore thought that the best way for us to add value would be to do something admittedly unconventional. Specifically, the Supreme Court has released a transcript of the Bilski oral argument but has not yet released actual audio of the event. Our thought was that one of the best ways to learn about the case would be to listen to the arguments the parties actually made and to hear the questions that Chief Justice Roberts and his colleagues actually posed. So, this month, we stage a reading of the transcript, with a dozen UCLA law students lending their voices for each relevant attorney or Justice. UCLA law professor Doug Lichtman hosts.
