Abstract

This comment examines the doctrine of equivalents, focusing on the tensions created by the continued attempts of the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit to bring certainty and structure to this equity-based doctrine. As the comment unfortunately concludes, these attempts to introduce certainty and structure have increased the confusion as to many different aspects of patent litigation and practice. The author suggests that a more viable solution to the problem would be to restrict the scope of the doctrine rather than add additional analytical restrictions to the doctrine of equivalents.
