Can’t you hear me? Court turns deaf ear to wireless radio patent-holder


SKU: IIPam171. Category: .


Abstract: When the Federal Circuit hears cases regarding the patent eligibility of abstract ideas, it subjects them to a two-part test established by the U.S. Supreme Court. Recently, the court found that two patented inventions failed both parts of the test. This article summarizes the facts of the case and the court’s opinion. A sidebar reviews a similar patent infringement claim that fell flat. Affinity Labs of Texas, LLC v. DIRECTV LLC, No. 2015-1845, -1846, -1847, -1848, Sept. 23, 2016 (Fed. Cir.) Mayo Collaborative Services v. Prometheus Laboratories, Inc., No. 10-1150, March 20, 2012 (U.S.) Alice Corp Pty. Ltd. v. CLS Bank Int’l, No. 13-298, June 19, 2014 (U.S.) Affinity Labs of Texas, LLC v. Inc., No. 2015-2080, Sept. 23, 2016 (Fed. Cir.)
