Re: Help for patent liability definition

Quoting Justin B Rye (jbr@edlug.org.uk):

From Justin explanations, I see this as "la personne juridiquement
responsable à propos d'un brevet".

If the patent is own by a given company, then patent liability
concerns that company. If the patent is owned by an individual, then
patent liability belongs to this individual.

I understand this as "who can enforce the patent in a court".

Depending on the context, that can also be "who can be sued for a
patent infrigment".
