  • The presentation is about a magic eight (ball). Not quite the answer machine you knew as a kid, but similar.

    Today your clients expect outside counsel to manufacture answers on demand. Answers about extrinsic risks, expressed in terms of what client stakeholders are doing in legal, technology and business terms. And they may want you to bring the answers to the table before they commit to the firm. You can't just shake the old 8ball for answers but you also can't cost-effectively predict problems before they arise. Or can you?

    Spend 45 minutes with Anaqua to hear from World Leading IP Strategist Barry Brager as he discusses 8 factors of insight you can bring to the table in your client development - far in advance of your next client win.


    Barry is a Certified Licensing Professional that brings a unique combination of expertise in entrepreneurship, analytics and marketing to the firm’s diverse teams, tools and techniques. In his role, Barry helps clients fully leverage innovation and IP strategy with a range of Expert Services from IP creation to IP monetization that have supported decisions related to billions in IP transactions.

  • Managing IP’s next webinar, run in cooperation with Birch Stewart Kolasch Birch LLP, will take place on May 12 at 4pm (eastern standard time); 1pm (pacific standard time) and will discuss ‘Pitfalls in Post-Grant Trials’.

    The popularity of USPTO post-grant patent trials have only increased. Whether the PTAB institutes an inter partes review, a post-grant review, or a post-grant validity review of qualified business method patents, each trial has procedural pitfalls with considerable strategic considerations during the Second Phase of the trial (from the institution decision to the final written decision by the Board). This webinar will explore the most common mistakes the third party petitioner or patent owner during the 2nd Phase, with an explanation of key decisions by the PTAB (including those posted on the USPTO microsite) as well as the Federal Circuit. The focus will be on discovery, the patent owner motion to amend, oral hearing, and estoppel.

    Speakers include:
    •Michael Loney, Americas editor, Managing IP (moderator)
    •Eugene Perez, partner, Birch Stewart Kolasch Birch LLP
    •Gerald Murphy, partner, Birch Stewart Kolasch Birch LLP

    With post-grant trials becoming increasingly popular, having an in-depths understanding of the pitfalls and challenges is essential for sustaining a strong presence in the market place. The live audience will be able to ask questions of the speakers during the webinar, which will be in English and will last one hour.

    This webinar relates to our April 16 discussion focusing on ‘Pitfalls in the first phase of Post Grant Proceedings’. You can listen to it here: https://www.brighttalk.com/webcast/327/149005
  • Managing IP’s next webinar, run in cooperation with Birch Stewart Kolasch Birch LLP, will take place on April 16 at 4pm (eastern standard time); 1pm (pacific standard time) and will discuss ‘Pitfalls in Post-Grant Proceedings’.

    With the passage of the America Invents Act in 2011, the number of filings for USPTO post-grant patent trials has dramatically increased. Whether it is an inter partes review, a post-grant review, or a post-grant validity review of qualified business method patents, each PTAB trial has procedural pitfalls with considerable strategic considerations, even before the PTAB makes an institution decision (also known as the First Phase of the trial).

    This webinar will explore the most common mistakes for the third party petitioner and patent owner made during the 1st Phase, with an explanation of key decisions by the PTAB (including those posted on the USPTO microsite) as well as the Federal Circuit. The focus will be on the real party in interest requirement (including privity), joinder and claim construction (interpretation) using the broadest reasonable interpretation standard.

    Speakers include:
    •Michael Loney, Americas editor, Managing IP (moderator)
    •Eugene Perez, partner, Birch Stewart Kolasch Birch LLP
    •Gerald Murphy, partner, Birch Stewart Kolasch Birch LLP

    Also, don’t forget to mark your calendar for May 12, when we will follow up with a second webinar on ‘Pitfalls in Post Grant Trials’.
  • A lot has been made recently about using big data to gain a competitive edge. Perhaps the most familiar example was made famous in the book and movie Moneyball. The book examined how the budget conscious Oakland A’s manager, Billy Beane, used data to compete with the deep pockets of the New York Yankees and other rich teams. With one of the lowest payrolls in baseball, Beane was able to consistently field a winning team, including a twenty game win streak, the second longest in baseball history.
    However, Beane did not create baseball stats. In fact, he used data that teams had been collecting for the previous 75 years. What Beane did was to look at the data in a new way and ask a different set of questions: What stats matter the most to win a game? Which players are the most undervalued?
    Some in intellectual property management have begun to look at how data can be used to make their organizations more efficient. This webinar will examine how forward thinking IP organizations can use data to optimize their IP management process. Topics covered will include:
    -What questions are important to ask?
    -How do organizations go about collecting the data necessary to answer those questions?
    -How should organizations use data to optimize their IP process?
    Speakers will include:
    Mark Bullard, VP Product Management, Lecorpio
    Jared Engstrom, Senior Patent Attorney, Red Hat
