Webinar: Strategic Litigation Considerations of New Patent Challenges Under the AIA

Finnegan-Hosted Event; Webinar; Speaking Engagement

November 14, 2012

Webinar

The Leahy-Smith America Invents Act (AIA) answered the call for a true adjudicatory proceeding in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office that allows litigation-like challenges to patent validity. Understanding this and other important changes effected by the AIA will be critical to navigating the landscape of patent enforcement and defense strategies going forward. How has litigation strategy been impacted by the AIA? What changes by the AIA are currently in effect and what changes will go into effect after March 16, 2013?

Please join Finnegan AIA team members for practical tips and strategies to capitalize on new opportunities under the AIA. Topics will include:

• The pros and cons of post-grant review or inter partes review versus district court litigation
• Data on the post-grant reviews and inter partes reviews filed to date
• The impact of other provisions of the AIA on litigation strategy
