No. 310

Argued April 2, 1957

353 U.S. 222

Syllabus

1. Venue in patent infringement actions is governed exclusively by 28 U.S.C. § 1400(b), which provides that any such action may be brought

"in the judicial district where the defendant resides, or where the defendant has committed acts of infringement and has a regular and established place of business;"

Pp. 353 U. S. 222-229.

3. The 1948 revision and recodification of the Judicial Code, 62 Stat. 869, made no substantive change in § 48 of the Judicial Code when it recodified it as 28 U.S.C. § 1400(b). Pp. 353 U. S. 225-228.
