We “break” laws, by challenging their validity. Some laws like 35 USC 101 are more difficult to break than others, but with time, 101 will be broken also.
When a law is deemed unconstitutional, it’s but one example where that particular law was busted, broken, kaputt. And all involved who helped break such unconstitutional law, collectively, are lawbreakers.
One of the early rules in frcp says ya can file whatever case ya want, provided there’s a reasonable basis. So, anyone can be a lawbreaker.
What if a group of clandestines infringe Pharma Co. Z’s patent for fentanyl manufacture, and they do it in Ohio ? Crime ? Yes, a few. Would they be “liable” for the infringement ? Indeed, but not in the usual sense.
So it is possible to infringe a patent, resulting in breaking the law.
But not all infringements are equal.
Maybe we can get Hochul, Newsome, Whitmer and others to coax the legislatures into creating new strict liability laws for patent infringement !!
Then, those jurisdictions can create new Investigative Divisions, and go out and bust those infringers !! Book ’em Dan-O
