The MSBA's Computer & Technology Law Section Presents:
"Induced Infringement Sea Change? The Akamai/McKesson en banc Decision "
On August 31, 2012, the Federal Circuit handed down an en banc decision in two cases on “divided infringement” of method claims, Akamai Technologies, Inc. v. Limelight Networks, Inc. and McKesson Technologies, Inc. v. Epic Systems Corp. The en banc decision overruled the 2007 Federal Circuit decision BMC Resources, Inc. v. Paymentech, which held that the liability of induced infringement required the finding of a single entity to be liable for direct infringement. This presentation will discuss:
this en banc decision;
dissents presented in this decision;
a first CAFC decision on divided infringement post-Akamai, Mirror Worlds, L.L.C. v. Apple, Inc.
; a comparison with indirect infringement of system claims; and
