Welcome to Skilled in the Art. I’m Law.com IP reporter Scott Graham. Ten years ago two networking companies embarked on a collaboration so ambitious it was dubbed “Project Everest.” Next week they’ll square off in a California state courtroom over allegations of broken contracts and trade secret violations. Acacia Communications‘ chief legal officer assured Viasat that it had engineered disputed products on its own, but Viasat contends that internal company emails suggest otherwise. Meanwhile, it’s been a good week for NPEs at the Federal Circuit, and one of the biggest looks to keep that momentum going on Monday. As always, please feel free to email me your thoughts and follow me on Twitter.
