Discussion

This interactive briefing is reserved for corporate executives and in house counsel.

As we begin to digest all of the implications of the AIA, it is becoming clear that this sweeping and complex piece of legislation will have a significant impact on assertions of patent infringement involving business method patents, and particularly multi-defendant litigation, as well as the options available to companies that are frequently targeted by entities asserting such patents.

This interactive briefing will give you an opportunity to learn about and discuss aspects of AIA that are of most interest in the near-term for companies facing allegations of infringement of business method patents, including:

  • Impact of “first-to-file” implementation
  • Shifting the battleground from the courts:  Pre- and post-issuance proceedings in the PTO to challenge pending and issued patents:
    • Prior art submissions by third parties (pre-allowance)
    • Inter partes reexamination
    • Post-grant review
    • Inter partes review
    • Challenges to business method patents
  • Joinder of multiple defendants in patent litigation
  • Prior User Rights
  • Advice of Counsel (willfulness and inducement of infringement)

Foley Speakers:

  • David G. Luettgen, Partner, Electronics
  • Steven J. Rizzi, Partner, IP Litigation
