On March 31, 2015, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear arguments in Kimble v. Marvel Enterprises, Inc., a case that has the potential to fundamentally alter important aspects of the patent and solicitor-client license. Kimble`s petitioner appealed a negative judgment of the 9th District, in which the 9th arrondissement court applied the precedent of the Supreme Court of Brulotte v. Thys Co., which ruled in 1964 that licensing agreements providing for licensing agreements for the payment of royalties beyond the duration of the patent granted were in itself illegal. Given that the type of licence at issue at Kimble - a "hybrid license" covering both patented inventions and unpatented know-how - is common in many technological areas, a decision that nullifies Brulotte or otherwise applies the relaxation of post-patent royalty restrictions could lead to major changes in the practice of technology licensing.

Dolby Laboratories Inc. agreed to set a lower royalty rate for a package of patents that would extend to the expiry of all patents in the package.35 The Seventh Circuit reluctantly struck down the agreement and found the undeterminedness of the language and Brulotte.36 However, Posner J. challenged the economic principles of Brulotte in his letter. , and notes that "the collection of royalties beyond the duration of the patent does not extend the patent holder`s monopoly; it simply changes the date of payment of royalties. 37 In the end, the majority struck down the agreement because "[the seventh circle] does not have the power to overturn a Supreme Court decision, no matter how dubious its argument is.
