Kimble v. Marvel to be argued at the US Supreme Court on 31 March 2015

The US Supreme Court confronts the previous case of Brulotte v. Thys in today's Kimble v. Marvel.

Judge Richard Posner had written of Brulotte when discussing the 7th Circuit case Scheiber v. Dolby Laboratories that Brulotte “seems rather to have been a free-floating product of a misplaced fear of monopoly… however, we have no authority to overrule a Supreme Court decision no matter how dubious its reasoning strikes us, or even how out of touch with the Supreme Court’s current thinking the decision seems.”
