The on-sale bar is a limitation on patentability. Not all sales, however, preclude patent protection. In this podcast, Finnegan partners Doris Johnson Hines and Erin Sommers provide an overview of the on-sale bar, how the AIA may have changed that bar, and they discuss a recent case that may provide more flexibility for companies to develop their technology with the help of external partners.
