Abstract

Mark McKenna was quoted in the CNBC article Why Apple’s the underdog in this Samsung trial on April 10.

"It's hard to know until you see all the relevant pieces, but an initial read of the patents suggests to me that some of them are written at a very broad level," said Mark McKenna, a law professor at Notre Dame. "It would surprise me if they were upheld at that level of generality."

Apple is making some broad claims about what it owns and will have to make a strong case to prove it actually deserves as much as it is asking for, McKenna said.
