The Supreme Court on Patent Law is a digest of U.S. Supreme Court decisions in the field of patent law. The author catalogs the Supreme Court’s involvement in shaping patent law, from its first cases to the most recent cases, shedding important light on the evolving course of this rapidly-changing practice area. Specifically, this book examines the Court’s treatment of patentable subject matter, including a case-by-case analysis in reverse chronological order and by specific topic that describes each case in a short, multi-paragraph format accompanied by key facts, key holdings and select quotations. Additionally, the author considers the Court’s treatment of relevant subjects in patent law: claim construction, statutory requirements, prior art defenses, equitable defenses, damages, willful infringement, declaratory judgment jurisdiction and injunctions.

The principal areas of the work are the Supreme Court’s treatment of:

  • Patent law
  • Patentable subject matter
  • Claim construction
  • Statutory requirements
  • Prior art defenses
  • Equitable defenses
  • Damages
  • Willful infringement
  • Declaratory judgment jurisdiction
  • Injunctions and other remedial matters.
This new title provides powerful quotations and an analytical roadmap that practitioners can use in their briefs, in arguments, and in formulating litigation strategy at each stage of the federal court system.
