The Impact of Recent U.S. Supreme Court IP Decisions on In-House and Business Practices

Program Number: 2987

Program Date: 05/29/2019


The presentation will summarize and share insights about the impact of cases such as Fourth Estate Public Benefit Corp. v. Wall-Street.com (a copyright holder must register a work with the U.S. Copyright Office before the holder can sue for infringement); Rimini Street, Inc. v. Oracle USA, Inc. (the term “full costs” in Section 505 of the Copyright Act, 17 U.S.C., means only the costs specified in the general cost statutes codified at 28 U.S.C. §§ 1821 and 1920 and not any expenses); Iancu v. NantKwest (the legality of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office’s controversial policy of seeking attorneys’ fees regardless of the outcome of a case); Mission Product Holdings v. Tempnology (the effect of bankruptcy on trademark licenses); Helsinn v. Teva (even secret sales preclude patents under the “on sale” bar); SAS v. Iancu (the PTAB must decide the validity of all challenged claims in an AIA review of a patent); WesternGeco v. Ion (patent owners can recover foreign lost profits under certain circumstances); and Return Mail v. U.S. Postal Service (is the federal government a “person” entitled to seek to invalidate patents under the AIA?). Other evolving topics that might be addressed include venue in patent infringement cases and patent eligible subject matter.
