U.S. Supreme Court

Peck v. Collins, 103 U.S. 660 (1880)

Peck v. Collins

103 U.S. 660


1. Under the patent laws in force in 1866, letters patent became absolutely void on the surrender of them.

2. The fifty-third section of the Act of July 8, 1870, c. 230, 16 Stat. 205; Rev.Stat., sec. 4916, declares that the surrender "shall take effect upon the issue of the amended patent." Semble that the effect of an adverse decision on the title of the patentee to the invention would be as fatal to the original letters as to his right to a reissue.

The facts are stated in the opinion of the Court.
