The case law regarding extraterritorial liability for patent infringement is extraordinarily complicated and evolving. Last year the Supreme Court decided WesternGeco v. ION, widening the scope of 35 U.S.C. 271(f) by holding that once a domestic act of infringement has been proven under 271(f)(2), damages resulting from the infringement may be recoverable regardless of where they occur in the world.

Fish principal DJ Healey will join other experts to discuss the implications of this decision. A patent litigator, DJ has tried cases in the federal courts, ITC, and various arbitration venues. She has argued appeals before the Federal Circuit, Fourth Circuit, and Fifth Circuit, and has planned and executed multi-jurisdictional strategies involving courts and government agencies in the U.S. and Europe. She also serves as an arbitrator and mediator. She is the author of the recent article "Patent Infringement Liability for Extraterritorial Acts."
