On June 9, 2008, the Supreme Court decided Quanta Computer, Inc. v. LG Electronics, Inc. The Court held that because the doctrine of patent exhaustion applies to method patents, and because the License Agreement authorizes the sale of components that substantially embody the patents in suit, the exhaustion doctrine prevents LG Electronics from further asserting its patent rights with respect to the patents substantially embodied by those products. In this episode of SCOTUScast, University of Missouri at Kansas City Law professor Chris Holman discusses the case.
