AIPLA CLE Webinar: Impact of SAS/Claim Construction Phillips/Discretionary Institution at the PTAB
December 3, 2019 12:30 PM to 2:00 PM (Eastern Standard Time) | 1.5 CLE CreditsThis webinar will address the impacts of dramatic changes occurring at the U.S. Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB). The PTAB has issued numerous precedential decisions, courts continue to grapple with the interplay between agency proceedings and district court litigation, and the Office continues to refine its procedures and reliance on discretionary factors in decision-making. Together, these developments create a rapidly evolving area of law. This webinar will focus on the impact of these recent changes for PTAB practitioners and district court litigators alike.
AIPLA CLE Webinar: Constitutionality of Protecting Product Designs Both as Design Patents and as Trade Dress
December 10, 2019 12:30 PM to 2:00 PM (Eastern Standard Time) | 1.5 CLE CreditsTraditionally, product designs have been protected both as design patents and trade dress. But should different intellectual property law regimes protect the same features of a product consecutively or even concurrently? Both the Constitution's Patent/Copyright Clause (Art. I//8/8) and its Commerce Clause (Art. 1/8/3) probably can provide such protection. But can they both really coexist? Ken Germain asserts that the PC Cl. trumps the Commerce Cl., so that only one type of IP protection is available; Rich Stockton asserts that coexistence is allowable and appropriate. A spirted collegial debate will ensue!
