Our 19th Century Patent System, Gregory Reilly Jun 2018

Our 19th Century Patent System, Gregory Reilly

IP Theory

The patent system is in flux. Concerns abound about the imperfect fit between traditional patent rights and the Information Age, excessive numbers of patents, overbroad patent rights, poor patent quality, and allegedly exploitative actors, like so-called “patent trolls.” In response, courts, commentators, and Congress have proposed, debated, and sometimes adopted a series of reforms and changes to patent rights, patent doctrines, and patent institutions. The America Invents Act of 2011 (AIA) introduced the most significant changes to the patent system since 1952 and was even described by one commentator (hyperbolically, as we will see) as “the most significant overhaul to ...

Proximate Vs. Geographic Limits On Patent Damages, Stephen Yelderman Apr 2018

Proximate Vs. Geographic Limits On Patent Damages, Stephen Yelderman

IP Theory

The exclusive rights of a U.S. patent are limited in two important ways. First, a patent has a technical scope—only the products and methods set out in the patent’s claims may constitute infringement. Second, a patent has a geographic scope—making, using, or selling the products or methods described in the patent’s claims will only constitute infringement if that activity takes place in the United States. These boundaries are foundational features of the patent system: there can be no liability for U.S. patent infringement without an act that falls within both the technical and geographic ...

Intellectual Property, Surrogate Licensing, And Precision Medicine, Jacob S. Sherkow, Jorge L. Contreras Apr 2018

Intellectual Property, Surrogate Licensing, And Precision Medicine, Jacob S. Sherkow, Jorge L. Contreras

IP Theory

The fruits of the biotechnology revolution are beginning to be harvested. Recent regulatory approvals of a variety of advanced therapies—Keytruda (pembrolizumab), Kymriah (tisagenlecleucel), and patisiran—have ushered in an age of “precision medicine” treatments that target patients’ specific genetic, physiological, and environmental profiles rather than generalized diagnoses of disease. Therapies like these may soon be supplemented by gene editing technologies such as CRISPR, which could enable the targeted eradication of deleterious genetic variants to improve human health. But the intellectual property (IP) surrounding precision therapies and their foundational technology remain controversial. Precision therapies ultimately rely—and are roughly congruent ...

According To The Dean: Public Service And Public Service Loan Forgiveness: A Commitment To Our State And Our Nation, Austen Parrish Mar 2018

According To The Dean: Public Service And Public Service Loan Forgiveness: A Commitment To Our State And Our Nation, Austen Parrish

Austen Parrish (2014-)

A student loan bill proposed by Congress is troublesome for those who worry about encouraging our best and brightest to commit to state and national service. Among other provisions, the bill – known as the PROSPER Act – would eliminate the Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) Program. The repeal apparently will do little for the federal budget, but the predictions are it will adversely affect government, the military and public-interest organizations that have relied on the program for attracting and retaining talent.

Hidden among the partisan rhetoric are issues of real importance to the state – and compelling stories about good people doing ...
