  • In a much anticipated opinion issued by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Apple v. Samsung on May 18, the design patent law with respect to remedies and the infringement test remains robust. Notably, and favorable to design patent owners, the Federal Circuit did not limit the availability of monetary remedies of Section 289. Furthermore, the Federal Circuit clarified aspects of the design patent infringement test.
