In July 2021, the US Patent and Trademark Office (PTO) issued a public request for comments regarding the impact of recent patent eligibility jurisprudence on US businesses and markets. The PTO received 145 responses to its request by the October 2021 deadline. In this paper, we analyze the responses by industry sector and respondent type, assessing whether responses were generally positive, neutral or negative toward US patent eligibility jurisprudence, and also identifying those responses that cited international competitiveness of US businesses (particularly with respect to China) in their reasoning.
