Welcome to Skilled in the Art. I’m Law.com IP reporter Scott Graham. IP has arrived on my home turf of North San Diego County, so I was on hand today for opening statements in Viasat v. Acacia Communications, a contract and trade secret dispute in which Viasat is seeking more than $300 million. I’ve got a quick rundown of opening statements. Plus I’ve got some second-day thoughts on the the Supreme Court’s Return Mail decision, and a look at Stanford’s concerns about floating claim construction standards. As always you can email me your thoughts and follow me on Twitter.
