West Coast Federal Appeals Court Upholds Chip Protection Act Violation Finding
January/February 2007 (vol. 27 no. 1)
pp. 124-126
IEEE Micro's law columnist analyzes the recent decision by the US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit to uphold a ruling that Clear Logic infringed Altera Corp.'s rights under the Semiconductor Chip Protection Act of 1984. One dispute at issue between the parties involved the level of abstraction to which protection under the SCPA extends. Another issue was whether the trial court incorrectly instructed the jury about reverse engineering.
