2015 Patent Trolling Legislation (1 hr. CLE)

Rep. Eric Koch, Indiana House of Representatives

 

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

 

While patent law is traditionally a federal issue, twenty-six states have enacted legislation to create or amend state laws that punish bad faith patent assertions, commonly referred to as “patent trolling.” Indiana enacted patent trolling legislation in 2015.

The author of HB 1102, Rep. Eric Koch, will discuss the new legislation which prohibits a person from asserting a claim of patent infringement in bad faith; provides that a court may, upon motion, require a person to post a bond if the target establishes a reasonable likelihood that the person has made an assertion of patent infringement in bad faith; establishes remedies and damages; and exempts certain: (1) approved postsecondary educational institutions; (2) technology transfer organizations owned by or affiliated with approved postsecondary educational institutions; and (3) licensees holding patents from postsecondary educational institutions or technology transfer organizations owned by or affiliated with postsecondary educational institutions; from the provisions regarding bad faith assertions of patent infringement.

HOUSE ENROLLED ACT No. 1102
