Partner Jeanne Gills was quoted in an Inside Counsel article, “Kimble v. Marvel Ruling Does Not Bring About Many Changes on Licenses,” on June 24, 2015. The article discussed the U.S. Supreme Court ruling on Kimble v. Marvel Entertainment to uphold the Brulotte rule, which holds that a patentee cannot receive royalties after the patent expires. Gills was quoted saying, “The court’s decision to keep Brulotte – a 50 year decision – in place makes sense and is consistent with patent policy. Today’s ruling simply means business as usual, although it may encourage parties to be even more creative in negotiating patent licenses going forward, especially with breakthrough technology.”
