Federal Circuit - Carnegie Mellon University v. Marvell Technology Group - $1.5 Billion Damage Award

Today, the Federal Circuit heard oral arguments on whether it should uphold $1.54 billion damage award in favor of Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) based on Marvell Technology Group's  infringement of US Patent No. 6,201,839 and 6,438,180 relating to improved accuracy of reading data from hard disk drives.

Some commentary thinks this case will have impact on the extraterritorial scope of US patents.
