Prof. Jorge Contreras to be interviewed about Bowman case by the Bloomberg Surveillance show on Tues. Feb. 19 at approximately 6:45am.

Professor Jorge Contreras will be interviewed by the Bloomberg Surveillance show regarding the Supreme Court case, Bowman v. Monsanto. The interview will be aired on http://www.bloomberg.com/tv/

The issue in Bowman, according to SCOTUS, is whether the Federal Circuit erred by (1) refusing to find patent exhaustion – a doctrine which eliminates the right to control or prohibit the use of an invention after an authorized sale – in patented seeds that were sold for planting; and (2) creating an exception to the doctrine of patent exhaustion for self-replicating technologies.
