Lexmark Tells High Court Not To Review Ruling On Foreign Sales’ Impact On Patents

(June 3, 2016, 9:33 AM EDT) -- WASHINGTON, D.C. — Lexmark International Inc. argues in a May 24 opposition brief to the U.S. Supreme Court not to review the Federal Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals’ ruling that foreign sales do not exhaust a patent owner’s right to sue and that patent owners can impose restrictions on the use of patented items to prevent an exhaustion of their rights to the intellectual property (Impression Products Inc. v. Lexmark International Inc., No. 15-1189, U.S. Sup.).
