Bloomberg BNA Conference at U.C. Hastings College of Law in San Francisco – March 12, 2015

Impact of the Supreme Court on Patent Enforcement

As more and more patent cases are decided by the U.S. Supreme Court, the complex issues at hand warrant in-depth analysis and discussion. Recovery of attorney fees, proving induced infringement, whether abstract ideas are patent ineligible, and the standard for determining indefiniteness have all been major components of recent decisions.

The faculty presenting this one-day conference, scheduled for March 12, 2015, will explore these issues in detail.

Educational Objectives:

  • Gain an understanding of the roles of the Federal Circuit and trial courts and standards to be applied in awarding attorney fees.
  • Recognize the importance of claim drafting to target infringement involving multiple parties.
  • Understand the difference between “abstract” patent ineligible claims and those with additional inventive features.
  • Appreciate the higher standard of indefiniteness.

Who would benefit most from attending this program?
Intellectual property practitioners, both those involved with patent litigation and patent prosecution.

SDIPLA Members will receive a $50 discount on the Early Bird Registration Fee (normally $195)
