Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit affirmed a district court on the issue of inducing infringement, finding that notwithstanding the Federal Circuits Seagate objective recklessness rule on willfulness, and its earlier Knorr-Bremse decision abolishing the adverse inference rule, opinion-of-counsel evidence is nevertheless probative of specific intent to induce infringement.
