ABSTRACT
The article discusses the Federal Circuit court ruling on the "In re Technology Licensing Corporation" case in the U.S. The court held that there is no right to a jury trial in a declaratory judgment action that seeks a declaration of patent invalidity, where the defendant counterclaims with alleged infringement and seeks an injunction as the sole remedy. Also cited are the issues' implications for patent law and legislation.
