Chester Rothstein, a partner at Amster Rothstein & Ebenstein LLP, was less convinced of the significance of the Crocs ruling, however.  While it's helpful to have another example to add to the 100-plus years of case law related to design patents, Rothstein said, “I don't think Crocs dramatically changed the law or analysis.
