Heather Repicky, a partner in Nutter’s Litigation Department and member of the firm’s IP Litigation practice group, commented on the Supreme Court’s ruling in Western Geco v. ION Geophysical Corp in IAM Magazine. In the article, “Supreme Court global damages ruling comes as a boost to licensors, but its application will be key,” Heather points out that patent owners will now be encouraged to use the Court’s logic in future cases to justify capturing damages from extraterritorial sales in other situations. She said, “In the end, regardless of its breadth, the Court’s holding will have real-world implications. While the White House has been focused on bringing manufacturing back to America, U.S. companies that do business globally now have an additional motivation to move the entirety of their manufacturing offshore.”
