Supreme Court to Hear Semiconductor Chip Patent "Exhaustion" Case
November/December 2007 (vol. 27 no. 6)
pp. 11-13
The Supreme Court has decided, for the first time in many years, to hear arguments in a patent licensing case. The dispute involves whether the "exhaustion doctrine"—the rule that a patentee's or licensee's sale of a product "exhausts" patent rights over the sold product—is still alive and kicking.
Index Terms:
patent, dicta, patent exhaustion, licensing
