Federalist Society Teleforum Conference Call

Featured Speakers:
Aaron M. Panner
Thomas G. Saunders


The U.S. Supreme Court recently decided another important pair of property rights cases. Nautilus v. Biosig Instruments concerns definiteness and the scope of patents. In Limelight Networks v. Akamai Technologies, the Court held that a defendant is not liable for inducing infringement under 35 U.S.C. § 271(b) when no one has directly infringed under Section 217(a) or any other statutory provision. How important are these decisions? What are their implications?

  • Aaron M. Panner, Partner, Kellogg, Huber, Hansen, Todd, Evans & Figel, P.L.L.C
  • Thomas G. Saunders, Partner, WilmerHale

Call begins at 1:00 p.m. Eastern Time.
