A federal judge has ruled that infringement claims brought against fitness technology company Fitbit can proceed despite the asserted patents being directed to “abstract ideas.” In Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly, IP litigation counsel Samuel Brenner (Boston) examines what this could mean for patent litigation.

Samuel explains that the Philips North America LLC v. Fitbit, Inc. case decision operates as a “roadmap” for parties in litigating the remainder of a Section 101 case beyond the motion-to-dismiss stage.
