    Dear Rich: I manage a band that made several songs, one in particular that has been sampled 153 times by various artists from 1988 to 2013. Except for half a dozen artists who made deals and paid (and this was negotiated and hidden from the rest of the band by one member who has since been thrown out) they have not been compensated. One of the richest men in hip hop used the song three times and never paid a dime. Of course they did not know the law and by the time they discovered it most had been sampled years earlier. Now several lawyers tell us there is a 2-3 year statute of limitation! Is…

  • Point: The Economist is Infallible - Patents need to be questioned

    2 Sep 2015 | 3:00 am
    In good, old high-school debate style, Neil and I are doing a point-counterpoint.  The dividing line? This Economist article from August 8th. The article kicks off with the fundamental economic question for IP - how does it incentivise innovation? Pointing to a number of shortcomings in patents in agriculture and pharmaceuticals, The Economist concludes that patents don’t.  It’s a strong opening and a good one.  If the political justification for a patent system is based on growth and innovation, then the patent system should be held accountable to its impact on…

How so? It appears that in a rush to make their mark and put their slogans in everyone's mouth the incumbent SYRIZA party and the main opposition party NEA DIMOKRATIA (or New Democracy) managed to get themselves caught up in a mark - slogan row over Greek word "ΜΠΡΟΣΤΑ" (BROSTA), which means forward.New Democracy leader and his sloganIt seems that New Democracy first occupied the…

  • Federal Circuit Lifts Injunction Against Sandoz

    Patent Docs
    2 Sep 2015 | 9:11 pm
    By Kevin E. Noonan -- Sandoz successfully (at least for now) has overcome conventional wisdom, the plain language of the Biologics Price Competition and Innovation Act (BPCIA) (or, at least those provisions regarding patent litigation) and Amgen in obtaining approval for its figastrim biosimilar product, Zarxio™ in Amgen v. Sandoz. The only thing standing between this biosimilar biologic drug and the marketplace was an injunction imposed by the Federal Circuit during the pendency of the parties' cross appeals from the District Court's decision, favoring Sandoz with regard to the patent…

EasyPak, LLC, the Federal Circuit offered some bits of wisdom for patent application specification drafting, while applying well-known case law to conclude that claims are not limited to a specific embodiment when the specification includes a broader disclosure. Inline Plastics Corporation sued EasyPak, LLC for infringement of U.S. Patent No. 7,118,003 (the '003 patent) and No. 7,073,680 (the '680 patent), directed to tamper-resistant plastic food containers.

  • Dickstein Shapiro Dodges Malpractice Suit by Showing Long-Ago Issued Claims Were to Ineligible Subject Matter

    David
    2 Sep 2015 | 12:49 pm
    By David Hricik This one will make your head spin, especially the statutory construction part.  The case is Encylopaedia Britannica, Inc. v. Dickstein Shapiro LLP (D. D.C. Aug. 26, 2015). The Dickstein Shapiro firm was retained by Encyclopaedia Britannica, Inc. (EB) in 1993 to file a patent application. The patent issued, and in 2006 EB sued several companies for infringing it. The patent was held invalid due to “an unnoticed defect” in the 1993 application.  The basis for invalidity was not 101, however. EB then sued the law firm for malpractice in prosecuting the 1993…

Cir. 2015) Download Opinion Panel: Prost, Dyk (author), Wallach Earlier this year in the opinion on remand in Biosig v. Nautilus, Judge Wallach rejected the argument that the Supreme Court’s opinion on the indefiniteness doctrine  “articulated a new, stricter standard.”  783 F.3d 1374, 1379 (Fed.

    Sequenom’s patent claim in question: 1. A method for detecting a paternally inherited nucleic acid of fetal origin performed on a maternal serum or plasma sample from a pregnant female, which method comprises: amplifying a paternally inherited nucleic acid from the serum or plasma sample and detecting the presence of a paternally inherited nucleic acid of fetal origin in the sample. The big idea here was to recognize that fetal DNA might be floating around in the mother’s blood and that the fetal DNA could be selectively amplified by focusing on the paternally inherited portion of…

    Dennis Crouch
    31 Aug 2015 | 10:15 am
    Inline Platics v. EasyPak (Fed. Cir. 2015) In this claim construction case, the Federal Circuit has reversed in favor of the patentee – finding that the district court improperly limited the claims to a specific embodiment. Here, the patents at issue are directed toward tamper-resistant food packaging. The idea behind the invention is easy to see from the drawings. A plastic lid connected to the plastic base by a perforated strip. The claims identify this perforated portion as a “frangible section” and the district court interpreted that language to mean “a removable tear…

    19 Aug 2015 | 5:41 am
    Power Integrations got 6,249,876 for "a technique for reducing electromagnetic interference by jittering the switching frequency of a switched mode power supply." Assertion against Fairchild Semiconductor was successful all the way through appeal, notably finding the patent non-obvious based upon a careful claim construction. On a dual track of reexamination instigated by Fairchild, the patent office found '876 obvious, based upon their sloppy claim construction. On appeal, the CAFC found that the patent "board fundamentally misconstrued Power Integrations' principal claim construction…
  • Abstract Juggernaut

    12 Jul 2015 | 6:09 am
    The steamrolling of software patents continues. Intellectual Ventures asserted two patents against Capital One that went to appeal (CAFC 2014-1506). One claimed tracking spending related to a pre-set limit. The other claimed web page customization based upon user history. Both were found grasping at an abstraction, and so patent ineligible under §101.
  • Abstract Loss

    24 Jun 2015 | 8:14 pm
    Internet Patents asserted 7,707,505 against Active Network and others. The district court found '505 patent ineligible under §101, which the CAFC affirmed. On appeal, Judge Newman (CAFC 2014-1048) seemed to agree that case law for §101 has all the clarity of someone speaking while gargling a mouthful of marbles. "Recently, the courts have focused on the patent eligibility of 'abstract ideas,' for precision has been elusive in defining an all-purpose boundary between the abstract and the concrete, leaving innovators and competitors uncertain as to their legal rights." In this case,…

    The incompetence of the patent office was demonstrated with 5,663,757, which EON asserted against 17 defendants. '757 survived two reexaminations. Then the district court found the patent indefinite for eight different means claim elements relying upon a disclosure that had no means for meeting the means. The CAFC affirmed (2014-1392).
  • Personal

    23 May 2015 | 8:01 pm
    Fenner Investments sued Verizon Wireless for infringing 5,561,706, which claimed locating and tracking "personal identification numbers." Claim construction of "personal identification numbers" as being personal led to stipulation of non-infringement. Fenner insisted "personal identification numbers" meant device-specific, not personal, despite the specification stating "personal identification numbers are not associated with any particular communications unit or physical location but are associated with individual users," and arguing the same to overcome prior art during prosecution.

    Dear Rich: We are working on a book that provides a compilation of stage banter quotes from rock concerts -- onstage quotes of famous singers and songwriters. We do not make commentary about the quotes, but some will certainly come across as flattering while others will likely come across as not-so-flattering. There are approximately 180 quotes at this point. Big note here: some quotes are culled from the Internet, most are transcribed by us (both from YouTube videos and the like and also from CD and DVD live recordings).

These disclaimer appear lengthy and go into a great degree of legal jargon. I would not like to craft my own.

In other words, does plagiarizing a medical disclaimer (or any privacy policy, FTC disclaimer, website TOS etc.) constitute infringement? Yes, copying terms of service (TOS) without permission is infringement.

The trademark was recently published for opposition at the USPTO and I have a few reasons to oppose the registration. One of them is genericness. What does it take to oppose a registration? In order to succeed with a genericness opposition, you'll need to show that the public associates the term with an entire genus of goods or service.
