A very short posting from me today from an item entitled “History Lesson” which appeared on the General Patent Corporation site last week.
They document the case of:
“…a U.S. patent which is not being enforced in an Indian reservation, in Oklahoma, because the reservation is a separate nation and, in that respect, not part of the United States. (Specialty House Of Creation, Incorporated v. Quapaw Tribe Of Oklahoma, a federally recognized Indian nation)”
Interesting huh? For those who would like to read more of the legal nitty gritty visit these pages on Justia.com
Thanks to Victoria Henson-Apollonio for sending me the link.
