Trade and Tradeoffs: The Case of International Patent Exhaustion
Posted by Lisa Larrimore Ouellette
When I read all the briefs for Lexmark v. Impression Products—the en banc Federal Circuit case on patent exhaustion that will be argued Friday—it seemed like there were pieces missing, including related to an article Daniel Hemel and I are working on. So we've written and posted a short Essay about the case, Trade and Tradeoffs: The Case of International Patent Exhaustion. If ten pages is too long, we also have an even shorter guest post up at Patently-O today, Will the Federal Circuit Recognize the U.S.–Foreign Tradeoff in Friday’s Lexmark Argument? Comments welcome!
