For whatever reason, if a patent is not likely capable of being enforced it presents no real risk and cannot be monetized for anything other than pure nuisance value.Even under the best of circumstances the value of any one patent, not to mention the combined value of an entire patent portfolio, is often shrouded in mystery.Traditionally it was said that the rules of duress and undue influence apply to cases where there is a lack of “consent” or “voluntariness” or where the promisor’s “will is overborne”.Indeed, these terms are not a sufficiently precise guide to the fine distinctions which the law has to draw.While drawing the line at 18 is subject to the objections always raised against categorical rules, that is the point where society draws the line for many purposes between childhood and adulthood and the age at which the line for death eligibility ought to rest. (c) The overwhelming weight of international opinion against the juvenile death penalty is not controlling here, but provides respected and significant confirmation for the Court's determination that the penalty is disproportionate punishment for offenders under 18. It does not lessen fidelity to the Constitution or pride in its origins to acknowledge that the express affirmation of certain fundamental rights by other nations and peoples underscores the centrality of those same rights within our own heritage of freedom. Simmons assured his friends they could "get away with it" because they were minors. on the night of the murder, but Tessmer left before the other two set out. Using duct tape to cover her eyes and mouth and bind her hands, the two perpetrators put Mrs. They reinforced the bindings, covered her head with a towel, and walked her to a railroad trestle spanning the Meramec River.should be deemed no longer controlling on this issue. (The State later charged Tessmer with conspiracy, but dropped the charge in exchange for his testimony against Simmons.) Simmons and Benjamin entered the home of the victim, Shirley Crook, after reaching through an open window and unlocking the back door. There they tied her hands and feet together with electrical wire, wrapped her whole face in duct tape and threw her from the bridge, drowning her in the waters below.The value of a patent or a patent portfolio in the broader patent market, for better or worse, is in some very basic way related to the likelihood that it can be successfully monetized.No matter how interesting or groundbreaking the innovation, patent value is a function of monetization potential, and monetization potential is dependent upon the enforceability of a patent in litigation.
(b) Both objective indicia of consensus, as expressed in particular by the enactments of legislatures that have addressed the question, and the Court's own determination in the exercise of its independent judgment, demonstrate that the death penalty is a disproportionate punishment for juveniles. Moreover, even in the 20 States without a formal prohibition, the execution of juveniles is infrequent.
