Patent Cases Before the Court

This week, the Supreme Court heard arguments on two important patent cases: Limelight v. Akamai and Nautilus v. Biosig. In addition to this week's video from Professor David Schwartz on these cases, the Chicago-Kent Faculty Blog has argument analysis and predictions on these two cases. The analyses are written by Professor Christi Guerrini, and the predictions come from Professor Edward Lee. Click the links below to read the posts.

In Nautilus, the Court will decide on the requirement in Section 112 of the Patent Code, which requires patentees to describe their patent claims with sufficient "definiteness".

In Limelight, the Court considers whether a defendant may be held liable for inducing patent infringement when there has been no direct patent infringement.
