The Connecticut Law Tribune published Jon Tropp and Rich Brown's article, "Induced Infringement Is In The Limelight," on October 5, 2012. Jon and Rich write that a recent U.S. Court of Appeals en banc decision holds that "a person may be liable for inducing infringement even though no other person is liable for infringing the patent directly." They note that the most significant outcome of this ruling is that "it will no longer be possible to evade liability by dividing infringement of a method claim." The decision was also notable for treating induced infringement separately from direct infringement.
