Foley Special Counsel Phillip Articola authored an article that appeared on Intellectual Property Watch on March 22, 2010 titled “Forest Group Decision Has Led To Great Rise In Patent Marking Lawsuits” Articola examines the rise in patent marking lawsuits following a Federal Circuit decision that has made it more financially viable for plaintiffs to sue under the false marking patent statute. He notes that patent reform currently before Congress would stop plaintiffs who have not been competitively injured by acts of false marking from suing under the false marking patent statute.
