Yelee Kim Presents at 15th ACI Advanced Summit on Life Sciences Patents
Patent partner Yelee Kim presented at the ACI Advanced Summit on Life Sciences Patents in New York on February 27, 2017. In 2016, the Supreme Court of the United States changed the test for willful infringement of a patent when it ruled in Halo Electronics, Inc. v. Pulse Electronics, Inc. The Halo ruling upended the generally accepted two-prong test for willful infringement established by the Federal Circuit in In re Seagate Technology, LLC. Yelee’s presentation “Goodbye Seagate, Hello Halo: Effects of the Evolving Willfulness Standard on Life Sciences Patent Filings,” discussed the changes to the willful infringement test, as well as best internal practices for minimizing risk of willfulness.
