Uncertainty confounds the patent landscape as Congress, the courts, industry, and patent practitioners attempt to manage major IP issues at a time when strong IP protection is critical and overall budgets are diminishing. There is no time more important than now to concentrate on fundamental IP strategy and how these policy issues will affect that strategy.
Join us for a Web conference providing insight from a leading corporate IP counsel, former top USPTO official, and practitioners to discuss:
- What does the future hold for patent reform legislation?
- How can new leadership impact the patent system?
- What are the outlook for and benefits of the reexamination practice?
- What will be the impact on patent litigation?
