Patent Litigation Strategies HandbookGet the knowledge, insights, and strategies you need to win cases, from many of the most experienced patent litigators in the country.

Expert litigators provide practical, winning answers to questions such as “Why sue in the first place?”; “Should you consider ADR instead?”; “What are your burdens of proof?”; “What types of damages should you seek?”; and more. You’ll also find analysis and strategic reasoning behind every phase of patent infringement litigation, from initial client counseling through the filing of the Notice of Appeal.

This Fourth Edition of Patent Litigation Strategies Handbook also provides updates on the most recent trends in patent litigation and winning strategies from some of the country’s leading attorneys, from both a patent owner’s and a challenger’s perspective.

The 2017 Supplement adds the following new material:

  • Samsung Electronics Co. v. Apple Inc.: in the case of a multicomponent product, the term “article of manufacture” is broad enough to encompass both a product sold to a consumer as well as a component of that product
  • TC Heartland LLC v. Kraft Foods Grp. Brands LLC: a patent infringement lawsuit against a domestic corporation may be brought only in (1) the state in which that defendant is incorporated or (2) where that defendant has committed acts of infringement and has a regular and established place of business; the Court declined to address any implication its ruling might have on venue in patent cases filed against foreign defendants
  • Sandoz, Inc. v. Amgen, Inc.: the Court decided the first case construing the Biologics Price Competition and Innovation Act
  • SCA Hygiene Products v. First Quality Baby Products: laches is not a defense against a claim for damages brought within the six-year limitations period of Section 286 of the Patent Act
  • Impression Products, Inc. v. Lexmark Intern., Inc.: the sale of a patented item domestically or abroad exhausts the patent rights as to those items, regardless of any contractual restrictions on purchasers, but the Court distinguished the effect of such restrictions on licensees, which would not exhaust the patentee’s patent rights, at least until a sale to the end purchaser
  • Kindred Nursing Ctrs. Ltd. P’ship v. Clark: a court may invalidate an arbitration agreement based on “generally applicable contract defenses” like fraud or unconscionability, but not on legal rules that “apply only to arbitration or that derive their meaning from the fact that an agreement to arbitrate is at issue”
