  • AIPLA CLE Webinar: Written Description & Enablement: How They Might Change

    October 13, 2022 12:30 PM to 2:00 PM   |   90 Minutes of CLE

    Most patent litigation cases do not hinge on questions of whether the patents-in-suit meet written description and/or enablement requirements. As a result, these issues do not often reach the Supreme Court of the United States. That may soon change. Companies in three unrelated cases are asking the Supreme Court to weigh in on various issues involving written description and/or enablement. This presentation explores the written description and enablement requirements and how they could change.

    After a break caused by the pandemic, trade shows are returning and presenting once again opportunities to exchange information about the newest IP. However, trade shows can also be venues where IP rights infringements are discovered and where disputes over IP rights arise or escalate. This presentation discusses the options that IP right owners have for immediate relief at trade shows and explores the ADR mechanisms that some trade show organizers around the world have created to deal with IP rights disputes. It also reviews special court rules that courts in some trade show centers in the world have adopted to facilitate IP enforcement at trade shows.
