Re: We need a patent court

The judges in the patent court all be trained in patent law and the ones on each case would be trained in the field they are presiding over.

Indeed ...

From what I see, it would seem that the judge involved in the original ruling may have had little or no knowledge of SEPs and FRAND, otherwise he would have asked.


In my profession, I've been involved in a couple of lawsuits where the judges presiding did not have a clue as to what was being disputed, basically not understanding what had really happened.

Nor did they want to take the time to understand, no matter how simple, detailed or just basic common sense the explanation put forth was.

As expected, the lazy bastards ruled accordingly.
