Bowman v. Monsanto Co. (U.S. Supreme Court)

The Supreme Court granted certiorari to consider the question of patent exhaustion in the context of patented soybean seeds. We represented BSA The Software Alliance as an amicus, demonstrating that the Court should not adopt a “self-replicating technology exception to the law of patent exhaustion. The Supreme Court, agreeing with this position, denied patent exhaustion.
