Abstract

In two separate cases to be argued the week of March 30, 2015, the U.S. Supreme Court continued to provide close oversight, often with critical disagreement, of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in the area of patent law. The Supreme Court will decide whether a patentee’s use of a royalty agreement that projects beyond the expiration date of the patent is unlawful per se. In a second case, the Court will determine whether a defendant's belief that a patent is invalid is a defense to induced infringement. Our expert was on hand to hear the oral arguments and reported to our Teleforum audience.
