IP Litigation Outlook

Postby Anonymous User » Wed Jun 27, 2012 10:46 pm

For EE/CS. It seems incredibly busy and in demand right now... but given the fact that everyone is starting to recognize that the patent system is broken, what are the chances that a big fix happens and the work dries up in the next 5-10 years?

could happen - at my firm, 70%+ litigation involved defending against NPEs. all we need is a few fed. cir. decisions telling the district courts to start applying eBay even more stringently, coupled with the ITC actually enforcing their domestic industry requirement and poof, a lot of NPEs will go away along with the majority of IP lit. that's going on right now.

We just passed the AIA, which is supposed to "fix" most of the problems. Now that the law is passed, we need lawyers to argue over what it means. Furthermore, your next "fix" won't happen for at least another decade since this "fix" just did.
