From the Hill—Patent Troll (PAE) Legislation Rolls On

Vol. 6 No. 4


Hayden W. Gregory is legislative consultant for the ABA Section of Intellectual Property Law in Washington, D.C.

This column has taken on an apparent trend recently in addressing the same topic in successive editions of Landslide® magazine. The May/June 2013 edition contained an overview of the role that the Section of Intellectual Property Law has played in the development of ABA amicus curiae briefs in the U.S. Supreme Court and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in cases that impact intellectual property law. That topic enjoyed a repeat appearance in July/August, when areas of IP law and specific cases in which the ABA contributed amicus briefs were discussed in some detail. The September/October edition zoomed in for an even tighter focus on just two cases that were then under development for ABA amicus participation.

Following that three-part treatment of IP amicus activity, patent troll legislation stepped up for multiple edition treatment.
