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.

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.

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

With a higher bar set for defensible collection in social media, it is time for a more practical approach to social discovery.
This webcast examines best practices of social discovery, no expert should ignore:
- Discoverability - including social media in eDiscovery plans and the impact on eDiscovery strategies
- Defensibility and authenticity - supporting case law that demands the use of a robust investigative platform that captures diverse types of content and metadata
- Challenges in dealing with this new data type - understanding common challenges associated with new forms of metadata and privacy issues
Watch this webcast to learn how and why to incorporate an investigative platform to collect, search, preserve and manage social media evidence and how to do so defensibly.

In a patent-driven industry where being first to file is paramount, companies recognize the power of turning ideas into assets. More and more companies now choose to aggressively grow and diligently monitor their intellectual property (IP) portfolios, viewing them as critical business assets. Patent frontrunners IBM and Samsung have set the bar high by collectively securing more than 12,000 patents in 2013 alone. Moreover, over 75% of Google’s patents have been awarded in the last two years and the number of applications from the search giant as well as other Silicon Valley-based tech companies is skyrocketing.
But as companies race to create more IP, how do innovation leaders ensure that their patent portfolio is aligned to strategic priorities? This webinar will discuss how to manage and create a strategic patent portfolio with two innovation leaders.
Key topics will include:
•How to align the patent portfolio to business objectives
•Ways to operationalize the patent process
