Patents - Infringement - Construction of claim - Validity of patent.
In proceedings for infringement of a patent relating to a system for reproducing articles embodying information at the point of sale location, where they were to be sold under the control of the 'owner' of the information, the court held that the processes carried out by the defendants did not give rise to an infringement of the patent. However, having regard to established principles, the patent was invalid for obviousness.
