Plenty of March CLE Programs to Choose From
There are quite a few Patent Trial & Appeal Board (PTAB) related CLE events over the next few weeks.
First, today, the PatentsPostGrant March Webinar will cover Patent Derivation, Trade Secret Misappropriation & Inventorship Disputes @2PM (EST). This program will cover the full breadth of considerations facing research heavy technologies (e.g., Bio/Pharma, semiconductor, etc) under the America Invents Act (AIA).
Later this week, the 2019 PTAB Bar Association Annual Conference will come town on March 14 – 15, 2019, at the Ritz-Carlton in Washington, D.C. Pre-conference sessions will be offered March 13th. I’m honored to once again moderate the PTAB Master Class.
You can view the full agenda and session descriptions (here).
For those not able to get to DC, next Monday, 3/18 @3PM the Practising Law Institute will host a webinar entitled: Getting Your Patent Out of the PTAB: New Opportunities. This program will explore new best practices and address how to leverage the evolving PTAB landscape, including new petitioner risks, patent owner opportunities and changes to come.
I am pleased to once again join with Rob Sterne of Sterne Kessler Goldstein and Fox on this PLI program. Register (here)
Finally, closing out the month of March, on Wednesday, March 27th, the American University Washington College of Law, Federal Circuit Bar Association, & Unified Patents Inc. present the Ninth Annual Patent Administrative Law Conference. The program will cover a host of hot topics including a panel on PTAB changes, and wireless standards and patent pools.
I hope you are available to join one of these upcoming events.
