- Excerpt from Supreme Court Hears Six Patent Cases This Term:

The Supreme Court heard a record-breaking six patent cases in the 2013–2014 Term. By contrast, the high court heard only three patent cases in each of the three previous Terms. While hearing even three patent cases in a single term is high by historical standards, hearing six patent cases is unprecedented and reflects the Court’s increasing interest in patent law. An overview of each of the patent cases from the current Term appears below.
