IP Frontiers: How the exhaustion doctrine applies to licensing agreements

By |2021-08-17T10:59:56-04:00August 30th, 2021|Business, Law|

The exhaustion doctrine is a longstanding, common law doctrine that limits the extent to which a patentee can control those rights after a first “authorized sale.” Under the exhaustion doctrine, once an authorized sale of a patented product occurs, the patent holder's exclusive rights to control the use or sale of that product are said to be "exhausted," and the purchaser is free to use or resell that article without further restraint from patent law.

Think before you post to social media

This recommendation applies to everyone, of course. But if you’re a lawyer, then you’d best heed my advice and tread lightly when posting commentary online on social media sites or elsewhere. Otherwise you run the risk of running afoul of your ethical obligations and unleashing the wrath of your bar’s disciplinary body. At the very least, you’ll face embarrassment and at the worst you may be disciplined or even barred from the practice of law altogether.
