 National Steel Car, LTD. v. Canadian Pacific Railway, LTD, et al.
During the course of the bidding process on Canadian Pacific's fleet of depressed center-beam flat cars, National Steel Car apprised CPR of the existence of the '575 patent and indicated that it was prepared to protect its patent rights.
Furthermore, neither the magnitude of the benefit derived by CPR from use of the cars nor the burden imposed on NSC from the carve-out of CPR's use from the scope of its right to exclude under the '575 patent is relevant to the section 272 analysis.
Thus, we conclude that CPR has made a strong case that all elements of the '575 patent are present in Wagner and Udstad, and that NSC has not overcome that case.
