Larkin Hoffman Files Supreme Court Brief in Support of Clarifying Patent Eligibility Standards


David Swenson filed an amicus brief on behalf of UK Intellectual Property Professor Paul Cole, urging the U.S. Supreme Court to hear an appeal in the matter of RecogniCorp v. Nintendo. This is the latest in an ongoing series of petitions for certiorari asking the Court to step in and to clarify the standards for patentability, as currently applied by lower courts to patent claims directed to improved data encoding/decoding processes, and similar computer-implemented inventions, under 35 U.S.C. § 101.

David is an intellectual property litigator and appellate advocate who regularly represents both plaintiffs and defendants in patent matters, including patent holders facing invalidity challenges to their IP rights under section 101.
