The Annual 'Hot Topics' Symposia series focuses on a variety of topics relevant to intellectual property law featuring panel debates, a keynote address, and individual talks by academics and practitioners. The events are designed to appeal to practitioners, academics, and students alike.

Part 1 of this program will focus on recent and proposed rule changes in the US Patent and Trademark Office.  The first changes constraining traditional patent prosecution strategies were to take effect on November 1, 2007, but were temporarily enjoined by Judge Cacheris of the Eastern District of Virginia.  Another set of changes are under consideration by the USPTO.  Professor Thomas will begin the discussion with his keynote address.  Following this, a panel of diverse practitioners and academics will present and discuss their views of the various interests.  This panel should be of utmost interest to new and seasoned practitioners alike, as the most fundamental rules of the patent "game" are in a state of flux.
