Professor Laser Quoted in Bloomberg Law on Patent Case

Professor Christa Laser was quoted in an article in Bloomberg Law titled “Suppliers Out in Patent License Talks After Appeals Ruling.” The article discusses a recent Fifth Circuit case in which suppliers of cellular components for cars sued standard essential patent holders for alleged antitrust violations, claiming that the patentees failed to license on fair and reasonable terms as required by their standardization agreements. In the article, Professor Laser explains that the Fifth Circuit avoided the merits of the antitrust claims brought by suppliers by finding that they lacked standing, but OEMs might be able to sue.
