Just an update on KSR Int’l Co. v. Teleflex Inc. (Opinion 04-1350; Decided April 30, 2007). KSR has been the most anticipated patent law case in the past year and will certainly be discussed for months and years to come.
Many are wondering if this will give a boost to businesses by getting rid of bad patents (and maybe the dreaded patent troll). Others wonder if we are returning to an “obvious to try” and “flash of genius” standard of patenting. Whatever your view, this decision will impact every industry in some form.
See the early buzz showing up already:
More to come.
