Nova Chem., Inc. v. Sekisui Plastics Co. LTD., No. 08-4090

By FindLaw Staff on August 28, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

In a licensing agreement dispute involving restriction of Styrofoam-type sales to certain Asian countries, district court's grant of summary judgment in favor of plaintiff-licensee is affirmed where the "fully paid-up" license clearly expired along with defendant's intellectual property rights in the process, and as such, because defendant does not have continuing intellectual property rights in the process, the License Agreement has no continuing force.
