SLW Invites You To A Free Webinar – America Invents Act: What Corporate Counsel Need To Know

Thursday, May 17th, 2012

Please join Schwegman, Lundberg & Woessner, P.A. for an hour-long discussion on how combining litigation, reexamination, and interference results in the USPTO’s new adversarial proceedings: inter partes review and post-grant review. The AIA offers these proceedings to provide efficient patentability decisions designed to reduce the costs of litigation. Accused infringers must weigh potential estoppels against the benefits of the new proceedings, which provide for a settlement period and limited opportunities for discovery, depositions, claim amendments, and other motions.

The webinar will be on May 23, 2012 12:00 PM (CDT)
