Patent Case Law Year in Review (RECORDING)
This webinar will provide a roundup of this year’s most significant patent cases. Over the past year, the U.S. Supreme Court and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit have authored a number of opinions re-shaping patent law, including Helsinn v. Teva, Return Mail v. US Postal Service, and numerous others involving issues such as UPSTO inter partes review decisions and patent eligibility under 35 U.S.C. § 101. Our panelists, both vice-chairs of IPO's Amicus Brief Committee, will provide key takeaways from these decisions and comment on patent cases to watch in the coming year.
