The U.S. Supreme Court recently issued highly anticipated opinions in two patent cases, both of which may have a profound impact internationally.

In TC Heartland LLC v. Kraft Food Group Brands LLC, the Court interpreted the venue statutes to prevent wide latitude to patent owners in initiating patent infringement litigation. The decision is expected to make patent-venue shopping more difficult for patent owners.

In Lexmark, the Court found that when a patent owner sells a product, that sale exhausts all patent rights in the item being sold, regardless of any restrictions the patentee attempts to impose and regardless of the sale location. The decision thus bars the patent owner from enforcing its patent rights against a buyer who purchased a patented product abroad but later imported and re-sold it in the United States.

This webinar will provide an overview of the two decisions and discuss their practical effects, especially the impact on Asian companies. Topics will include:

TC Heartland and its effect on district court proceedings including venue transfer motions

How TC Heartland may shape the geographic distribution of patent infringement litigation and implications for Asian companies

Lexmark and the commercial and international trade ramifications of the expanded patent exhaustion doctrine

How Lexmark may impact the global acquisition and sales strategies of Asian companies

This webinar is the first segment of Finnegan’s summer 2017 series, “Shifts in U.S. Patent Law: How to Pivot.”
