Austin Principal Charles Fowler published an article, "After TikTok, Tiptoeing Toward Patent Transfer Alignment," in Law360. The article discusses last year's decision from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit In re: TikTok Inc., promising to clarify the law governing convenience transfers under Title 28 of the U.S. Code, Section 1404(a) in patent cases. "As the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas retakes the lead for the most new patent cases and the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas holds onto second place, the direction of transfer law in Texas patent cases prevails as an important topic," said Charles.
