On November 3 at 12:30 EST, I will be participating in an AIPLA webinar with Prof. David Hricik (Mercer College of Law) and William Covey, Director of the OED at the USPTO. We will present:
Inequitable Conduct Lives!
This presentation will provide information of use to old pros and new practitioners. The panelists will provide an overview of the ethical obligations of practice as well as the substantive law of inequitable conduct and related disciplinary matters, including several recent cases finding inequitable conduct despite the barriers created in 2011 by Therasense. It will also provide practical procedures and practices to avoid creating a record that leads to inequitable conduct and for more compact prosecution.
