The 2018 WesternGeco LLC v. Ion Geophysical Corp Decision by the US Supreme Court Protects Infringement of US Patents Worldwide
VoIP-Pal is reviewing its damages models based on this decision 

January 7, 2019 -- Inc. (“Voip-Pal”, “Company”) (OTCQB: VPLM) Inc. (“Voip-Pal”, “Company”) (OTCQB: VPLM) recognizes the significance of the US Supreme Court decision of June 22, 2018 in WESTERNGECO Llc V. Ion Geophysical Corp, No. 16-1011 (6-22-218) 579 U. S. ___ (2018).

In the 7-2 ruling, the court extends the doctrine of earlier patent infringement cases that allow recovery under 35 U.S.C. § 271(f)(1) for components protected by U.S. patent law that are included in products assembled abroad. (Supreme Court ruling)

Emil Malak, CEO of Voip-Pal, stated, “the doctrine affirmed in WESTERNGECO could have broad implications in damages awarded to patent owners when U.S. patented components are shipped for assembly to foreign countries. Conversely, the same section of the of the U.S. Code, 35 U.S.C § 271(a) provides protections against sale within the U.S. of foreign produced products which infringe on any U.S. Patents:

Whoever without authority makes, uses, offers to sell, or sells any patented invention, within the United States, or imports into the United States any patented invention during the term of the patent therefore, infringes the patent.

35 U.S.C § 271 ensures protection for patent holders and an “even playing field” for manufacturers by requiring that all products, whether for sale within the United States, or for sale abroad that are assembled with U.S.-sourced components, that infringe U.S. Patents, will result in damages that the patent holder may recover in court. Voip-Pal is in the process of reviewing its current damages models in their patent infringement lawsuits and will adjust the projected damages wherever it is warranted.”
