Original air date:  July 8, 2014.  Limelight:  Its Effect on Multiple-Actor Infringement Liability.

In a unanimous decision, the Supreme Court in Limelight Networks, Inc. v. Akamai Technologies, Inc., held that induced infringement of a patent under 271(b) requires a predicate finding of direct infringement under 271(a).  The Supreme Court left open the question of whether a single party acting in concert with another party could incur 271(a) direct infringement liability, leaving the Federal Circuit’s Muniauction case law intact for now.  

High-value patents and patent applications directed toward mobile devices, internet technology, medical methods, healthcare IT, among other technologies may be affected by Limelight, as the use of inventions in those areas often involve multiple actors.  Join our esteemed panel, including AIPLA President-Elect, Sharon Israel, and Scott Howard (co-author of AIPLA’s amicus brief), as they review Limelight and its practice implications.  The panel will investigate concrete practice tips, including best practices for application and claim drafting, freedom-to-operate considerations, and litigation.  Presented by:  Sharon Israel of Mayer Brown, LLP, and Scott Howard of Patterson Belknap Webb & Tyler, LLP.
