The USPTO’s Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) has become a critical venue for litigating patent validity. Companies accused of patent infringement, or simply aiming to clear the way for market entry, often ask the PTAB to review an issued patent’s validity because the PTAB delivers answers through a fast-moving proceeding, but the PTAB rules are constantly evolving and unforgiving. Leading companies, innovators, and global market leaders need experienced counsel to successfully litigate PTAB cases and understand how these proceedings affect their business goals.
During this installment of the firm’s We’ve Got Washington Covered webcast series, lawyers from Latham & Watkins' Intellectual Property Litigation Practice will outline what companies need to consider when navigating patentability issues in PTAB proceedings and the impact of these proceedings on related litigation and patent strategies.
The featured topics will include:
- Recent Federal Circuit cases on patentability
- Overview of the 2019 Revised Patent Subject Matter Eligibility Guidance
- Winning 35 U.S.C. § 101 arguments in the PTAB, District Court, and the Federal Circuit
- Impact of PTAB arguments on district court litigation
