Making Infringers Pay: A Lunchtime
In eBay Inc. v. MercExchange L.L.C., the Supreme Court made clear
that permanent injunctions are not always available in patent cases.
Thus, infringers may be required to pay but not have to stop
infringing a patent. The case has profound implications for
inventions that are only components of larger devices and for
“patent trolls,” companies that own patents but do not produce any
goods. This roundtable will explore the role of injunctions in
patent, copyright, and trademark law, exploring their similarities
students and faculty are invited to come along to participate in, or
simply listen to, the discussion. Refreshments will be served.
Come here what Professors Hulbert, Staudt, Piatt and myself have to
say about this important case. Also, learn a little bit more about
the Intellectual Property Law Society and the Chicago-Kent’s Program
in Intellectual Property Law.
