    With recent cases such as the Apple v. Samsung disputes, Osram v. LG Innotek & Samsung LED and the “Viagra case” between Pfizer and Hanmi Pharmaceutical, having a clear understanding of the South Korean legal framework and enforcement practice becomes crucial in successfully protecting your patent portfolio and other forms of IP rights.

    Recently, there has been a rise in allegations that the high costs of the patent litigation system in the US are being exploited to reach settlements even on low-value patents. This has led to concerns from technology companies as well as end-users that the patent system is impeding business development and innovation.

    Key to this debate is the question of damages in litigation: How are they awarded? What is proportionate? Are any changes in the law needed? In this webinar, our panellists will look at the issues raised by the troll debate, what strategies plaintiffs and defendants can adopt and what changes, if any, are needed.

    Whether you, or your clients, face threats from trolls, or will potentially be affected in the future, this webinar will help you understand the essence of the problem, how existing laws can already face these challenges and the consequences of new legislation on the issue.

    Speakers include:
    • James Nurton, managing editor, Managing IP (moderator)
    • Eric E. Bensen, intellectual property author and independent consultant
    • Bryan W. Butler, IP Counsel, IBM
    • Charles R. Macedo, Partner, Amster, Rothstein & Ebenstein LLP

    The webinar will focus on patent trolls and damages, covering:
    • What is ‘troll-behaviour’, and what is acceptable?
    • How can existing laws be utilized to tackle the problem?
    • What is being done to change the situation, and will these initiatives be effective or harmful?

    With the troll issue being discussed around the world, there is still a lack of definition and clear understanding. This webinar will provide an invaluable guide for patent owners who are affected by this problem, or might be in the future, as well as their advisers. 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.

  • During this webinar we will provide an overview of some of the concerns and previous limiting factors in securing 10GbE networks, and provide an overview of how Dell | SonicWALL can assist with:

    - Delivering IPS and Anti-Malware at 10GbE speeds, supporting your recent infrastructure investments
    - Providing a low latency/high throughput security solution protecting your internal network assets
    - Creating granular user and group access controls at the application level, reducing the impact of non-productive bandwidth intensive applications

    Many organizations have made significant investments recently, transforming their infrastructure to support 10 GbE speeds looking to capitalize on the benefits and efficiencies gained by increased bandwidth without upgrading their existing security appliance, introducing a potential security risk and bottleneck. This webinar will provide you with an overview of this, and discuss how Dell | SonicWALL can assist your team in meeting these requirements.

  • The Shield Act is “entirely unnecessary”; the America Invents Act was a missed opportunity; and two recent US Supreme Court decisions were “extremely poorly reasoned and very harmful to a well-functioning system”

    Judge Michel speaks candidly about some of the frustrations he has experienced since stepping down from the bench in order to be free to engage fully in patent debates. In particular, he describes how he testified before a Congressional subcommittee – and the members seemed not to care that he was (perhaps uniquely) a neutral witness, with no axe to grind.

    Now legislators are talking about further changes to the patent system, with specific proposals in the so-called Shield Act. But Michel says the Act proposed “would do vastly more harm than good and is entirely unnecessary”. Interfering with judges in the ways proposed in the Act would be a “threat to justice” says Michel, adding that the problems with the patent system are that it is too slow, too unpredictable, too expensive and too disruptive – and solving them means investing in the USPTO (probably by paying examiners more).

    As he says in the video, Michel is at liberty to speak out now he is retired, but I suspect his concerns are widely shared in the judiciary. During the Forum, I moderated a panel that included Michel’s successor as Chief Judge, Randall Rader: when I asked him directly if new legislation (such as the Shield Act) were needed, he said emphatically “No” and argued that parties and judges already have the tools they need to deal with abusive and expensive litigation.

    I suspect the response from those who feel they have been victims of patent trolls will be: if district court and appeal judges really can deal with abusive litigation, then they should do so. This might involve acting tougher with vexatious plaintiffs and being more willing to award costs in appropriate cases. Maybe we need to see a bit more judicial activity here?
