Professor Lee Comments for Daily Journal on Patent Infringement Case

Professor Peter Lee commented for the Daily Journal on a patent infringement case that resulted in a $105 million jury verdict against Fairchild Semiconductors Inc. Professor Lee said cases like this are almost always appealed and have a high probability of being reversed on "claim construction" grounds at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.

"How you define patent technology plays a big role in determining whether the patentee's intellectual property was infringed upon," Lee said. "There's a relatively high rate of reversal by the Federal Circuit in these types of cases."

Professor Lee's scholarly work addresses the intersection of science and society, particularly exploring the patent system's impact on scientific and technological progress.
