Welcome to the Klinck LLC Patent Blog!

Robert “Bobby” Klinck here.  In this blog, I will be providing readers with information related to patent infringement lawsuits around the country.  Among other things, I will:  provide blurbs about Federal Circuit Decisions, recap and analyze significant patent law cases and developments, and provide advise for patent owners who are considering a licensing or litigation campaign.

One of the regular features of the blog will be blurbs recapping patent decisions by the Federal Circuit.  These blurbs will be at 30,000 foot level.  The goal will be to notify readers of the decisions and provide enough information for readers to decide whether it is worth their while to pull and read the decisions.  I will provide the case name, a link to the decision, a notation about whether the decision is precedential, where the case was on appeal from, a summary of the topics address, and the ultimate result (e.g., affirmed).

For some cases and other patent law developments, I will provide more in-depth recaps and analysis.  This will include recaps and analysis of presidential Federal Circuit decisions that involve holdings that are likely to be relevant to a wider audience.  Similarly, I will provide commentary and analysis of district court cases and legislative initiatives.

Finally, I will provide pointers for patent owners who are considering a licensing or litigation campaign.  These pointers will include things that patent owners should consider to protect their rights and things these owners should consider before hiring a lawyer to handle their case.
