Video of Oral Argument of Texas’ Patent Agent Privilege Case

The Supreme Court of Texas heard oral argument the other day in In re Andrew Silver, the patent agent privilege case. The issue has been characterized as follows:

“The issue in this mandamus to rescind a discovery order is whether Texas evidence rule 503 protects confidential communications between a patent applicant and his non-attorney patent agent authorized to practice law in federal patent proceedings.”
