Scott Kelly Co-Authors Article for Interactive Entertainment Law Review

Banner Witcoff attorney Scott M. Kelly co-authored an article published in the December 2019 issue of Interactive Entertainment Law Review. He wrote the piece with Alex Nealon, a research assistant at the firm.

In their article, Scott and Alex examine a recent appellate decision in Game and Technology Co. Ltd. v. Activision Blizzard and Riot Games, Inc., a case involving patented technology relating to game avatars. They also discuss how inter partes reviews have changed the game in patent suits.

“This case illustrates the important role that IPRs play in US patent litigation, as well as the double-edged sword of obtaining very broad patent claims,” they wrote.
