Patent Related Misconduct Issues in US Litigation

ISBN13: 9780195337204
Published: May 2010
Publisher: Oxford University Press
Country of Publication: USA
Format: Paperback
Price: Out of print

This book is designed to serve as the first comprehensive review of conduct defenses and counterclaims, with a focus on existing case law and litigation strategies.

The first section of the book addresses claims involving misuse of the patenting process, with a focus on patents on a product or process the patentee did not invent as claimed and inequitable conduct claims, including intentional failure to cite material references and false or misleading declarations. From here the book turns to claims based on the misuse of the litigation process, including baseless and bad-purpose suits. The third and final section of the book describes claims based on the misuse of the competitive (antitrust) and licensing processes.

Each section of the book is divided into sections devoted to law and strategy, with practical guidance related to handling document demands and other discovery requests, expert testimony and waiver issues.

The primary market for this book is patent and antitrust litigators with a secondary market for in-house attorneys (both in the U.S. and other jurisdictions) supervising U.S.-based patent litigation. This book can also serve as a point of reference for law school students interested in patent law and antitrust litigation.
