Rothwell Figg Attorney Derek F. Dahlgren Discusses Samsung v. Apple

January 16, 2017PDF

Earlier this month, Rothwell Figg attorney Derek F. Dahlgren served on a panel of distinguished intellectual property and Supreme Court experts who held a media briefing conference call on the U.S. Supreme Court’s December 6 landmark unanimous decision in the Samsung v. Apple design patent case.

Mr. Dahlgren also was quoted in an IP Law360 article, discussing the same case. He is quoted as saying that the ruling is “pretty much an express invitation from the Supreme Court” for the Federal Circuit to create a framework for identifying the relevant article of manufacture.

"In an ideal world it would be nice to have guidance from the Federal Circuit setting forth the appropriate framework," Mr. Dahlgren said.  "I think what they would be inclined to do is provide guidance that is sufficient for the lower courts to implement."
