Piercing the Corporate Veil: Personal Liability for Patent Infringement

Can the owner of a business be personally liable for patent infringement? The answer is yes, but only under certain circumstances. Typically, when a company is sued for patent infringement, the company is identified as the infringing entity. There are instances, however, when the principals or employees of a company can be sued for patent infringement and can be subject to personal liability.
