Roche Co-Owner with Stanford in HIV Test Kit Patents – Says US Supreme Court
After hearing the parties, the US Supreme Court decided that Roche has ownership rights over the three patents and that Bay -Dole Act does not trump the company’s rights. It pointed out that the inventor of the patents signed a confidentiality and assignment agreement with Cetus, which gives ownership rights to Roche. As it is a co-owner, the Court held that Roche is not liable for infringement of the patent and need not pay any royalty to Stanford.
