Patent Litigation Update

SCOTUS and the Federal Circuit

This CLE will examine the implications of several recent decisions for businesses seeking to protect their key technologies through patents: Secret sales can now serve as invalidating prior art (Helsinn). Patentees can now recover lost foreign profits for certain instances of infringement (Western Geco). Attacking patent subject matter eligibility under Section 101 at the pleadings stage has become more difficult (Berkheimer). Choice of venue for patentees filing suit in district courts has become more limited (BigCommerce and HTC).
