Supreme Court Series: Kirtsaeng v. John Wiley & Sons, Inc. and Cuozzo Speed Technologies LLC v. Lee Post-Argument Discussion
April 25, 2016 @ 3:45 pm - 6:00 pm
From the CSUSA Website:
“The DC Chapter of the Copyright Society of the USA is pleased to join the the Federal Circuit Bar Association in cosponsoring the next program in the American University Program on Information Justice and Intellectual Property’s ongoing Supreme Court Series.
A panel of counsel for amici and parties will discuss the case on the afternoon following oral argument before the Court.
Issue in Kirtsaeng: What is the appropriate standard for awarding attorneys’ fees to a prevailing party under § 505 of the Copyright Act?
Issue in Cuozzo: (1) Whether the court of appeals erred in holding that, in IPR proceedings, the Board may construe claims in an issued patent according to their broadest reasonable interpretation rather than their plain and ordinary meaning, and, (2) Whether the court of appeals erred in holding that, even if the Board exceeds its statutory authority in instituting an IPR proceeding, the Board’s decision whether to institute an IPR proceeding is judicially unreviewable.”
