    Abstract: Before 35 U.S.C. § 299 was enacted, some minority district courts had permitted
    joinder of independent defendants only because they infringe the same patents. That
    gave a great incentive to non-practicing entities to sue as many defendants as possible
    in one suit. To resolve this problem, Congress created § 299(b) to abrogate the
    minority view of joinder. The Federal Circuit in In re EMC Corp. also created a test
    requiring finding of “an actual link between the facts underlying each claim of
    infringement.” The Federal Circuit provides six EMC factors for lower courts to
    determine permissive joinder. The Eastern District of Texas relies primarily on “the
    use of identically sourced parts” to find joiner, while other district courts have denied
    joinder of direct competitors. Particularly, in mobile phone technology cases, the
    Eastern District of Texas has permitted joinder only because the same hardware
    component is used, while other courts may find misjoinder only because mobile
    devices of one manufacturer’s operational system are not the same as mobile devices
    of another manufacturer’s operational system.
