Design Patent Links – Nov. 25, 2013

It was a fairly slow week in design patent law. Aside from Suffolk Law School’s design patent conference, all eyes were on Apple v. Samsung and the Federal Circuit’s third decision in the ongoing worldwide litigation between the two technology giants. As for the design patent conference, I think it is safe to declare it a great success. Several guest speakers, including design patent giants Chris Carani, Perry Saidman, and Michael Zeller presented on everything from the “matter of concern doctrine” to the damages issues being raised in Apple v. Samsung. For full coverage see our live

blog of the A.M. session and the P.M. session.

In other news, the analysis of the Federal Circuit’s decision in Apple v. Samsung III continues to pop up across the Internet. Prof. Sarah Burstein’s piece on Patently-O is a good summary of the court’s decision and potential ramifications.

Law 360 had a short explanation of the facts relating to the latest design patented fashion fight in Hanesbrands v. Lululemon, which was filed last week. This should be another interesting design patent grudge match in the fashion world.

As always, if you have any design patent news you would like to see on the Ordinary Observer, please do not hesitate to contact me. Thanks!
