RIPL Cited in Petition for Certiorari to the Supreme Court
The John Marshall Review of Intellectual Property Law is proud to announce that it has been cited by W.L. Gore & Associate’s Petition for Certiorari in the case of Bard Peripheral Vascular, Inc. v. W.L. Gore & Associates, Inc., 670 F.3d 1171 (Fed. Cir. 2012), which was further reviewed by the Federal Circuit en banc in Bard Peripheral Vascular, Inc. v. W.L. Gore & Associates, Inc., 476 F. App’x 747 (Fed. Cir. 2012). Read the petition for certiorari.
The article written by Andrew B. Dzeguze titled “Avoiding the ‘Fifth Beatle’ Syndrome: Practical Solutions to Minimizing Joint Inventorship Exposure” is cited on pages 33, 34, and 36. The petition cites Mr. Dzeguze’s observation that the Federal Circuit is biased against claims of joint ownership that punishes unnamed inventors or joint inventors and it has overstepped its bounds in that regard.
Congratulations to Mr. Dzeguze and the RIPL staff.
