  1. Note that the argument of FTCR and PubPat (that the work University of Wisconsin researcher James Thomson to isolate stem cell lines was obvious in the light of previous scientific research) has been rejected by the USPTO as to the remaining two WARF patents.

    The argument of FTCR and PubPat was based on previous work which the USPTO found not to be enabled (ie, didn't teach one of ordinary skill how to carry out the work claimed by WARF). The challenge was in the end, fundamentally frivolous.
