Fed. Circ. Remand Shows Nautilus May Have Little Impact

Law360, New York (April 27, 2015, 9:39 PM EDT) -- The Federal Circuit's remand ruling Monday that a Biosig Instruments Inc. patent asserted against Nautilus Inc. is not indefinite, the same conclusion it reached before the U.S. Supreme Court changed the indefiniteness test last year, shows that the new standard likely won't cause the spike in invalidity findings that some expected, attorneys say.

The Federal Circuit , ordered by the Supreme Court to take the new Nautilus standard into account and review its 2013 decision that Biosig Instruments Inc.'s heart rate monitor patent is not indefinite, concluded that the revised test did not change the outcome of the case. (Credit: Getty)...
