Recognizing the importance of the Internet early on, Marger Johnson was one of the very first IP law firms to establish a presence on the Internet. Firm co-founder Alex Johnson also played an instrumental role in winning patent protection for software, securing thse rights before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in what became known as the Alappat decision (In re Alappat, 33 F.3d 1526).
