Ron Cahill, a partner and co-chair of Nutter’s Intellectual Property Department, discussed the Supreme Court holding that the America Invents Act did not narrow the scope of the on-sale bar in patent cases in IPWatchdog's article, “Industry Insiders: Opinions Mixed in Aftermath of Supreme Court Holding in Helsinn.” According to Ron, “With many amici filed, the Supreme Court took up the question and answered it unanimously: so-called ‘secret sales’ are prior art that may bar patenting. While potentially narrowing the scope of what can be patented, this decision provides clarity and certainty that inventors and the patent bar have been calling for.”
