EFF says patent reform could bust its Patent Busting Project

The EFF has sent a letter to Senators Patrick Leahy D-VT and Arlen Specter R-PA outlining its problems with the Patent Reform Act the bill has already passed the House. Under the bills current language, patents will be subject to a post-grant review process, but the current reexamination system would be scrapped.The post-grant review system would allow nonprofits like the EFF to challenge bum patents for only 12 months after they are issued.

Seriously. Why should there be any time limit?
