The article discusses U.S. patent law as of September 2011 and the author's view that the patent laws need to evolve to encompass the ever-growing changes within the scientific and technical communities regarding atypical inventions. The author examines various aspects of the U.S. patent laws, including the structural bias of the U.S. patent laws against accidental inventions, a proposed alternative legal framework to resolve any disparities, and the process of patenting an impossible invention
