The article, titled "Patent Exhaustion, Vodka, Ranch Houses, Monkey Selfies," discusses an en banc decision from the Federal Circuit clarifying the law of patent exhaustion; trademark cases involving Stolichnaya vodka and canvas tote bags; and copyright cases related to ranch-house floor plans and "monkey selfies."
