IP Summit 2017

IPR - INtellectual Property Rights
Date: Thursday, 07 December 2017 08:30 - Friday, 08 December 2017 16:30

Venue: The Hotel Boulevard de Waterloo, 38 1000 Brussels  |  City: Bruxelles, Belgium

The U.S. patent landscape continues to evolve with changes that impact both prosecution and enforcement strategies. Over the last few years, the U.S. Supreme Court has issued a number of significant decisions that have upended Federal Circuit precedent and long-standing principles of patent law including. The USPTO has also been active, retooling its procedures and issuing numerous guidelines in response to demands for better efficiency and clearer examination standards. 

Prior to the IP Summit, Finnegan will be hosting an Advanced U.S. Patent Seminar. This seminar will address the key developments that are important to patent stakeholders in and outside of the United States, including conditioned sales and exhaustion issues in view of Quanta and Lexmark. It will also provide practical advice to address the needs of in-house counsel and experienced patent practitioners, as well as those familiar U.S. patent law fundamentals.

The following topics will be addressed by this seminar:

  • Drafting and Prosecution Strategies for U.S. Applications
    • Patent-eligibility in view of Alice/Myriad/Mayo
    • Functional claiming issues and “means” language
    • Effective use of the “problem-solution approach”
  • Avoiding Infringement: Freedom to Operate and Warning Letters
    • How to address warning letters?
    • Written opinions in view of Halo and Stryker
    • Challenging patents: Are you better off at the PTAB?
  • Implications for Supplying Components to and from the United States
    • Is the sale or supply of a single component enough to trigger liability?
    • Conditioned sales and exhaustion issues in view of Quanta and Lexmark
  • Asserting Your U.S. Patents Against Competitors
