Software Patents: Historical Decision by the US Supreme Court on the Limits of Patentability Εκτύπωση E-mail

On June 19th, 2014, the US Supreme Court finally set limits to software patentabilty. In a unanimous decision, the judges rejected patent claims in Alice v. CLS Bank. Just like the Free Software Foundation, April applauds this decision, which, though it concerns only the US, is a strong signal against software patents. April also underscores that this Supreme Court decision exposes the importance of being able to turn to a general and independent court, regarding the question of patents, to limit the excesses of specialized courts - and fears the absence of such a protection in the context of the future European unitary patent. april.org, 20 June, 2014.


Do University Patents Pay Off? Evidence from a Survey of University Inventors in Computer Science... Εκτύπωση E-mail

... and Electrical Engineering.

Studies of the costs and benefits of university patent ownership have, to date, focused on life sciences technology. Increasingly, however, many of the most lucrative university-owned patents relate to computing and telecommunications, not genes or pharmaceuticals. In 2007, a University of California spin-off named Eolas settled a patent suit with Microsoft for $100 million. In 2010, Cornell University won a $184 million jury verdict against Hewlett-Packard in a case that later settled on confidential terms. And most recently, in 2014, Carnegie Mellon University received a $1.5 billion judgment — one of the largest patent damages awards in history — in an ongoing suit against Marvell Semiconductors.

Free Trade in Patented Goods: International Exhaustion for Patents Εκτύπωση E-mail
Modern international trade law seeks to increase global welfare by lowering barriers to trade and encouraging international competition. This “free trade” approach, while originally applied to reduce tariffs on trade, has been extended to challenge non-tariff barriers, with modern trade agreements targeting telecommunication regulations, industrial and product safety standards, and intellectual property rules. Patent law, however, remains inconsistent with free-trade principles by allowing patent holders to subdivide the world market along national borders and to forbid trade in patented goods from one nation to another. By Rajec, Sarah, Berkeley Technology Law Journal, Vol. 29, 21 April 2014.
European Parliament paves the way for Europe-wide patent protection Εκτύπωση E-mail

The European Parliament last week backed the Commission's proposal to complete the legal framework for a Europe-wide patent protection, updating existing EU rules on the jurisdiction of courts and recognition of judgments. The legislation will also pave the way for a specialised European patent court – the Unified Patent Court – to take up its work once ratified by all Member States, making it easier for companies and inventors to protect their patents.
