  • 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

    With post-grant proceedings becoming increasingly popular, having an in-depths understanding of the pitfalls and challenges is essential for sustaining a strong presence in the market place.

    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

  • Managing IP’s next webinar, run in cooperation with Lecorpio, will take place on December 11 at 6pm (GMT); 1pm (EST) and will discuss strategies for using patents defensively and offensively.

    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.

    Speakers:
    •Dana Rao, Vice-President, Intellectual Property & Litigation, Adobe
    •Douglas Luftman, Vice President, Innovation Services & Chief Intellectual Property Counsel, NetApp
    •Bill Soward, COO, Lecorpio
    •James Nurton, managing editor, Managing IP (moderator)

    Key topics will include:
    •How to align the patent portfolio to business objectives
    •Ways to operationalize the patent process
    •Automating and systemizing IP
    •Managing patents for offensive and defensive strategies
    •Quality vs. speed


    The webinar is free to attend and will last about one hour. The audience is invited to submit questions throughout the webinar, which will be answered during a moderated Q&A session at the end.
  • Managing IP, in association with McAndrews, Held & Malloy, invites you to join a free web seminar focusing on strategies for early resolution of IP disputes.

    As litigation becomes increasingly expensive and prolonged, early resolution strategies are more and more attractive to IP managers. IP has never been more valuable to an organization, but without the correct enforcement and resolution strategies, IP disputes can become a heavy burden on your budget. Thus, having a range of successful early resolution strategies at your disposal will enable you to save money and find mutually beneficial solutions for IP owners and accused infringers.

    Speakers include:
    •James Nurton, managing editor, Managing IP (moderator)
    •Edward A. Mas II , partner, McAndrews, Held & Malloy
    •Leland G. Hansen, partner, McAndrews, Held & Malloy
    • Vaishali Udupa, IP litigation manager, Hewlett-Packard
    The webinar will focus on successful early resolution strategies, covering:
    •The importance of preparation
    •How to select an appropriate forum
    •Assessment of litigation costs and potential exposure
    •Identifying potential counterclaims
    •How to conduct early discovery and avoid delays
    •Ways to file an early motion for summary judgment
    •The utility of settlements
    •Properly-timed PTO and ADR Proceedings
    •How a redesign might solve your problems

    With litigation becoming increasingly expensive and prolonged, having a well-functioning early resolution strategy is essential for sustaining a strong presence in the market place. This webinar will provide an invaluable guide for IP managers who are facing the problem of having to deliver ever greater levels of IP protection or defense, all while managing resources under considerable time constraints. 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.
