    – Our faculty have been covering many of the recent oral arguments and decisions in cases before the U.S. Supreme Court. This week, Edward Lee and Christi Guerrini analyzed and made predictions in the intellectual property cases Nautilus v. Biosig Instruments and Limelight v. Akamai; both posts were highlighted in SCOTUSblog’s Wednesday and Thursday roundups, respectively. SCOTUSblog’s Thursday roundup also featured Dave Schwartz’s ISCOTUSnow video explaining the two cases.
