The exclusivity provided through patent protection has never wandered far from the long shadow cast by antitrust regulations and concerns. In this episode, McDermott IP partner Nathan S. Smith and colleague Will Diaz discuss some of the major issues that counsel and companies should consider when they find themselves on either end of a patent litigation. In addition, they discuss some antitrust issues to keep in mind in the intellectual property context. The podcast begins with Sarah Bro, who shares some recent IP headlines from across the world, and concludes with Barrington E. Dyer, who discusses recent cases that address exceptions to the Noerr-Penningtong doctrine, which can shield companies from antitrust liability when filing a patent lawsuit.
