Back to Case Listing

Fish obtained a reversal of the district court’s summary judgment of invalidity against Fish client SRI. The district court had held four SRI patents invalid due to a prior “publication” that purportedly consisted of a posting on an Internet-connected FTP server. The case raised the novel issue of how the court’s case law on traditional paper publications should extend to the Internet age. The Federal Circuit held that the issue was ultimately one of fact for a jury to decide and remanded the case for trial.
