U.S. patent law imposes a duty of candor on all associated with the prosecution of applications before the U.S. Patent Office. A breach of this duty can give rise to inequitable conduct, if it is found any individual associated with prosecution of the application omitted material information with the intent to deceive the Patent Office. Inequitable conduct provides an equitable defense to a charge of infringement. Materiality of the omitted information much be such that “but-for” the omission, the patent would not have issued. See Therasense v. Becton, Dickinson & Co., 649 F.3d 1276 (Fed. Cir. 2011). Therasense raised the then-existing standard for finding inequitable conduct. While this is a high standard, inequitable conduct has been found in post-Therasense cases.
