Abstract

This paper explains why the use of prosecution history estoppel to limit the doctrine of equivalents only when an estoppel exists is unsound. The standards for overcoming an estoppel should be used in every case and not just where there is an estoppel.

Keywords: patent, doctrine of equivalents, infringement

JEL Classification: O34, K10, K33
