Reexamination/Reissue, PTAB Bar, & IPWatchdog Con2020

A few CLE programs on the horizon, including the PTAB Bar Association annual meeting and the inaugural IPWatchdog Con!

First, this Tuesday at 1PM (EST) Stafford Legal presents the webinar: Patent Reexamination and Patent Reissue as Litigation Tools – Insulating Your Patent Portfolio From New Threats. This program will explore the current post-grant/patent litigation landscape with an eye toward emerging trends and challenges facing patent owners and challengers alike. Best practices for utilizing patent reissue/reexamination will be explored, along with potential pitfalls and nuances of these unique mechanisms.

Coming up in March, there are a number of exciting conferences.

First, the 2020 PTAB Bar Association Annual Conference will come to DC the Ritz-Carlton in Washington, D.C., on March 10-13th. Pre-conference sessions will be offered March 10th. I’m honored to once again moderate the PTAB Master Class.

Later in March is IPWatchdog Con2020 arrives in Dallas Texas March 15-18th. This multi-day conference will cover the entirety of the IP landscape, including licensing, ethics, funding, prosecution.  I’m especially looking forward to this one, hope to see you there.
