Federal Circuit Case: Assignment Agreement Did Not Explicity Assign Continuation-In-Part Application

The Federal Circuit has ruled that a patent assignment was ambiguous because it was not clear whether children patent applications from the original parent application were to be included in the assignment.  The Federal Circuit remanded the case for the trial court to resolve the ambiguity issue in the patent assignment agreement.  Euclid Chemical Co. v.
