    Edwards Wildman's Ralph Loren Weighs In On High Court's Induced Infringement Ruling in Law360

    News
    Ralph Loren, an intellectual property partner in Edwards Wildman's Boston office, commented on how the U.S. Supreme Court set aside a Federal Circuit decision that lowered the standard for proving induced infringement, ruling that induced infringement can be found only when one party performs every, not any, step in Law360. In the article,"Lawyers Weigh In On High Court's Induced Infringement Ruling," Loren said, “In Limelight, the Supreme Court unanimously reversed the Federal Circuit, holding that a direct infringement was a requirement for a finding of induced infringement. Interestingly, the court specifically declined to decide whether the Federal Circuit decision in Muniauction, which held that direct infringement can be found if one party ‘exercises “control or direction” over the entire process such that each step is attributable to the controlling process.’ The court implies that it might reverse that rule but that the issue was not before it.”
