Abstract:     
The essay argues that courts should do more to ensure open access to patent litigation documents. The Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit already requires the parallel submission of non-confidential versions of any briefs filed under seal.The same approach could work in the district courts and would go a long way in solving the current problem of overly-sealed records.
