Law360 recently spoke with Austin Principal John Campbell regarding the Federal Circuit’s decision to vacate summary judgment of noninfringement for lock maker Travel Sentry Inc.  The Federal Circuit held that Travel Sentry may be liable for infringing a lock patent based on actions performed with the Transportation Security Administration (TSA).  Some attorneys believe the decision could lead to greater liability for infringement based on actions performed by a third party.  John says that’s not necessarily the case.  The decision "could be considered an expansion, but I'm not really sure it is," said John. Rather, the expansion occurred in the 2015 Akamai Technologies v. Limelight Networks case and the Federal Circuit here “really took the same test it established in Akamai and followed the same two prongs to the letter."  The full article can be found here.
