(a) Special Pleading Requirements

Any pleading containing patent infringement claims or counterclaims must contain:

(1) a list of all products or processes (by model number, trade name, or other specific identifying characteristic) for which the claimant or counterclaimant has developed a good-faith basis for alleging infringement, as of the time of filing the pleading; and

(2) at least one illustrative asserted patent claim (per asserted patent) for each accused product or process.

(b) Scope of Discovery

Discovery shall not be limited to the products and processes named in the complaint. The party asserting infringement may also engage in discovery into other products with reasonably similar features or other processes with reasonably similar steps.
