On May 30, 2017, the US Supreme Court issued a sweeping decision in Impression Products v. Lexmark International, holding that the patentee's sale of "a product exhausts all of its patent rights in that item, regardless of any restrictions the patentee purports to impose or the location of the sale." 

The ruling overturns decades of Federal Circuit’s precedent and will have far-reaching economic and legal consequences.


Please join us to discuss the decision and hear from the experts.

Daniel Shores (Shores & Oliver, PC) and Sandra Badin (Mintz Levin), co-authors of BPLA amicus brief, will review the U.S. Supreme Court decision.
