  • 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.
