dc.description.abstract German Patent Attorney, European Patent and Trademark Attorney, Partner at Forrester & Boehmert in Munich, Germany, and Shanghai, China, with his office at Munich. Goddar has a technical background as well as PhD degree in physics, with a focus on polymer physics. He teaches Patent and Licensing Law as an Honorary Professor at the University of Bremen, Germany; as a Lecturer at the Munich Intellectual Property Law Center, in Munich, Germany; as a Visiting Professor at the University of Santa Clara, the University of Washington, and the National ChengChi University in Taipei; and as a Consultant Professor at Huazhong University, Wuhan, China. This Article examines recent German court decisions analyzing Section 10 of the German Patent Act (“PatG”), which governs cases of contributory patent infringement, focusing in particular on the implications of recent decisions on potential cross-border infringement. The Article offers recommendations on how judicial scrutiny of contributory infringement in Germany may be streamlined in light of potential evidentiary problems and concludes with a case study of how German courts might analyze a situation like that face by the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in AT&T v.
