I did some google searching to see what others had written on the subject.   While I wouldn't rely on what I found as legal advice, or even to support an argument with Jeff Smiley, it isn't too hard to find discussion of patent infringement cases holding individuals liable without piercing the veil.    There's also some discussion in Chisum to that effect that mostly cites older appellate court decisionss.
 
The most recent CAFC case I saw discussed was a 2004 case that seems to suggest that the piercing the veil standard is to be applied, which would suggest that it isn't all that easy to hold the owner liable in a garden variety infringement case.
 

 
 
Would you mind submitting the cite or link to that case?  It would be an interesting read.
