This amicus brief details the longstanding protection of patents as fundamental private property rights under the Constitution, reaching back to early 19th-century decisions by the Supreme Court and lower federal courts. This amicus brief builds upon recent briefs filed by CPIP Senior Scholars in several patent cases, including Cuozzo, Cooper, Halo v. Pulse, and others. These other briefs make similar arguments about the protection of patents as property rights, the historical facts about patent licensing, and other important legal and policy points.
