Becker’s Hospital Review quotes Paul Cronin in “Playing the 'Sport of Kings': Intellectual Property Management Options for Hospitals"Print PDF
Paul J. Cronin, a partner in the Litigation and Intellectual Property Departments and a member of the Intellectual Property Litigation practice group, was quoted extensively in “Playing the 'Sport of Kings': Intellectual Property Management Options for Hospitals" in Becker’s Hospital Review on September 30. The article discusses the 2012 patent infringement case in which Carnegie Mellon University received almost $1.2 billion in damages after a federal jury determined Marvell Technology Group had sold semiconductors that used technology developed by Carnegie without a license. Paul notes that Carnegie’s victory can serve as an example not only for other universities but also for academic medical centers. “It was obviously a great business decision for this institution,” Paul says. “It’s a very good model for hospitals to consider.” Paul also discusses licensing and the pros and cons of fighting patent infringement battles.
