Sponsored by Kinney & Lange, this free CLE program is tailored for in-house counsel and business lawyers, and covers patent issues affecting the rights, obligations and competitive strategies of businesses. This program combines lectures covering substantive legal topics and statutory and judicial updates in the context of practical business considerations.

There have been a great number of changes in patent law over the last year. Therefore, this year's seminar will focus on the more complicated aspects of patent prosecution, ownership, and enforcement in this time of change. We expect that the new Intellectual Property Strategies: Seizing Opportunities and Managing Risks seminar in 2012 will be of particular interest to in-house attorneys.

Topics of focus include:

  • Introduction - A Year of Change in Patent Law
  • Transitioning to a First-to-File Regime
  • USPTO Review of Issued Patents - Reissue, Reexamination, and the New Post-Grant Review
  • Changes in Marking & the Advent of Virtual Marking
  • A New Paradigm for Patentable Subject Matter
  • Secret Prior Use Defenses after the AIA

This is a moderated re-broadcast of the program originally recorded on June 15, 2012.
