This morning, the Federal Circuit will hold arguments in appeal no. 12-1548, Apple Inc. v. Motorola, Inc., which is the appeal of Judge Posner’s dismissal of both parties’ patent infringement claims for failure to prove entitlement to a remedy (either injunctive relief or damages). This is a case that could have vast consequences for future SEP and non-SEP cases, as the Federal Circuit is being asked to address issues relating to RAND-constrained infringement damages, the availability of injunctive relief for infringement RAND-encumbered SEPs, and also the basic standards by which any patent holder must prove entitlement to a remedy. If you’d like to catch up on some of the issues, check out our previous posts on this case:

We’ll be attending the oral argument in person, and will check back later today or tomorrow with notes on any interesting lines of questioning. If you can’t attend in person and would like to listen to the audio of the oral argument, the Federal Circuit posts the audio of each argument on this page, typically by the afternoon.
