Patent Reexamination: The New Strategy for Litigating Infringement Claims
By Philip Brooks
Strafford Publications is hosting the above-titled webinar/teleconference with interactive Q&A on May 26, 2010.
This CLE webinar will provide guidance to patent litigators regarding common challenges that arise when using parallel patent reexaminations as a litigation tool. The panel will provide best practices for pursuing or defending patent litigation claims involving reexaminations.
Patent reexamination filings are soaring. Companies accused of patent infringement are now fighting back by routinely asking the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (PTO) to reexamine the validity of the accuser?s original patent.
