Although U.S. patent rights generally do not extend beyond the territorial borders of the United States, supplying components of a patented invention from the United States may constitute infringement under 35 USC § 271(f). In deciding where to place their supply chain, companies should consider when activities outside the Unites States may give rise to infringement and what damages might flow from that infringement. These questions are not always straightforward, and the governing law continues to evolve, with the Supreme Court considering in WesternGeco whether damages for infringement may sometimes include foreign lost profits.

Join us as we discuss:

  • The development of extraterritorial infringement cases for liability and damages.
  • The effect of the Supreme Court's WesternGeco decision on the scope of U.S. patent law.
  • Whether WesternGeco should affect where companies manufacture their components and assemble their products.
