September Webinar to Focus on RPI/Privy Issues
The September edition of the PatentsPostGrant.com webinar series will be held this Wednesday September 18th@ 2-3PM (EST). The September program is entitled Avoiding PTAB Pitfalls: Indemnification & Joint/Common Interest Agreements.
The webinar will explore the increasing complexities of real party in interest (RPI) and privity determinations before the USPTO Patent Trial & Appeal Board (PTAB). In particular, the webinar will focus on multi-defendant disputes, and the risks/considerations in joining joint defense groups (JDG)/Common Defense Agreements, and in navigating indemnity agreements and obligations. The discussion will explore the Board's renewed interest in these issues based upon recent guidance of the Federal Circuit.
My co-presenter for this webinar will be Matthew Rizzolo, litigation counsel in Ropes & Gray's intellectual property litigation practice.
The formal portion of the webinar will begin at 2PM Eastern and will last for approximately 50-60 minutes. After the presentation there will be a Q&A period.
