On June 5, Inside Counsel published an interview with Washington antitrust partner Jake Kramer regarding the Supreme Court’s recent decision in Lexmark v. Impression Products, which prohibits patent holders from bringing infringement claims to enforce post-sale restrictions on patented inventions. “The Supreme Court’s decision in the Lexmark case should be quite disruptive,” Kramer said. “On one hand, companies that have relied on patent rights to enforce post-sale restrictions will need to alter their business models or find ways to enforce their post-sale restrictions, subject to limitations imposed by antitrust law. On the other hand, third parties that offer aftermarket alternatives should flourish and can operate without fear of infringement claims.”
