Our panel will analyze the major developments in patent law during 2016, discuss key cases to watch in 2017 and evaluate the impact of these matters on strategic business decisions. The discussion will include

  • The Supreme Court’s decisions in Cuozzo, Halo, and Samsung v. Apple and their effect on inter partes review (IPR) and district court proceedings.
  • How upcoming cases in 2017, such as TC Heartland and Impression Products could impact choice of venue in patent infringement cases and exhaustion of US patent rights.
  • How the Federal Circuit’s 2016 decisions, including Enfish, In Re Queen’s University, WBIP, LifeNet Health, Wi-Fi One and Husky Injection Molding Systems, affect patent eligibility of computer-implemented inventions, privilege of communications between a non-lawyer patent agent and client, enhanced damages after Halo, the preservation of claim construction disputes for appeal, and a variety of updates involving IPR and other Patent Office Reviews.
  • This roundtable will also include an one hour California MCLE approved seminar on ethics, including discussions of ethics related to the field of intellectual property.
