Supreme Court Places Burden of Proving Infringement on Patentee

Posted on Feb 11, 2014 in Blog

The U.S. Supreme Court on January 22, 2014 held that when a licensee seeks a declaratory judgment against a patentee that its products do not infringe the licensed patent, the patentee bears the burden of persuasion on the issue of infringement, thereby reversing the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Medtronic, Inc. v. Mirowski Family Ventures, LLC, U.S., No. 12-1128.
