    Since the 1830s, a nonstatutory, judicially-created rule has provided that secret commercial use of an invention by its inventor for more than a year barred patentability only as to that user. Since the passage of the AIA there has been considerable controversy as to whether the language in 35 USC 102 (a), "or in public use, on sale, or otherwise available to the public" has abrogated the forfeiture rule of D.L. Auld.

    In this program, our esteemed panel will discuss how to advise a client on patentability after secret commercial use citing the following cases:

    • Metallizing Engineering Co. v. Kenyon Bearing

    • D.L. Auld v. Chroma Graphics

    • W.L. Gore v. Garlock
