On June 13, 2016, the United States Supreme Court decided that the two-part Seagate test being used to decide whether or not an infringer is subject to enhanced damages was inconsistent with the statutory authority (35 U.S.C. §284) relied on for those claims.

Prior to making an investment in a start-up, investors look to ensure that the team, product, and market aspects are all strong. They then carry out due diligence to expose and plan for potential risks. These usually include financial and legal risks, but more and more investors are focusing on intellectual property too.
PatSnap will be teaming up with Jon Calvert, Managing Director at ClearView IP, to discuss what aspects should be considered when beginning due diligence and how a rigorous approach can secure a greater likelihood of realising substantial investment returns.
In this webinar we will explore:
- What kind of intellectual property does a startup actually have?
- How do I know if the intellectual property position is strong?
- What kind of things should be on my intellectual property due diligence check list?
- How can I put a financial value on the intellectual property?

India remains an attractive destination for foreign investors as its economic fundamentals and optimism about its prospects remain strong. From a macroeconomic perspective, India is one of the fastest growing major emerging markets, with recent projections from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) pointing to a fiscal growth of 7.4% versus a 6.6% expansion in China for 2016. Politically, it is more stable than in previous cycles, with the BJP led government initiating a number of reforms and regulatory measures that are instilling economic confidence and raising India’s attractiveness as a destination for FDI. The country’s demographics are equally promising: India is home to 18% of the world’s working-age population (ages 15-64), a growing middle class with increasing purchasing power and a corporate sector that is flexing its muscle domestically and globally.

Patent litigation and trials present unique challenges and opportunities for universities and other academic institutions. The panel will discuss these unique circumstances in depth, including national data on university patent litigation, effective university trial themes, PTAB validity challenges, university standing in patent infringement litigation, the assignment versus license of patent rights, and the enforcement of running royalty provisions.

Successful companies abide by a fundamental business principle: “If you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it.” Lawyers and electronic discovery professionals, however, have been slow to adopt this bedrock tenet, relying instead on more reactive and subjective approaches. As regulatory requirements, data volumes and types, and budget pressures mount, proactively managing litigation portfolios can provide substantial differentiated value. In this webinar, our experts will discuss how pre-defined, comprehensive, and legally defensible managed services programs foster faster identification of responsive and critical information, more efficient and predictable spending, and better litigation outcomes.

When the EU’s highest court invalidated the Safe Harbor protections for transferring data from the EU to the U.S., hundreds of organizations were left scrambling, including law firms, legal service providers, and corporations involved in litigation and investigations. In addition, the proposed EU-wide General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) may severely limit the data that can be legally transferred outside of the EU. Recently, the EC and the U.S. Department of Commerce announced an agreement to replace the Safe Harbor agreement on transatlantic data flows with a new EU to U.S. “Privacy Shield.” In this webinar, international law experts will review the Privacy Shield and GDPR, with a focus on the tensions they create for multi-national organizations trying to meet U.S. discovery and investigation obligations.

Vietnam continues to be a major foreign direct investment destination in Asia Pacific. The country has positive macro-economic factors demonstrated by its solid and continued GDP growth, a number of free trade agreements, improving infrastructure and a young demographic and low labor costs which has encouraged businesses to relocate there. However, there remain a number of potential uncertainties and risks for inbound investors given the new government administration following the Communist Party of Vietnam’s 12th National Congress in January. The geo-political situation around the South China Sea is also an issue for those operating in Vietnam, and limitations in obtaining information and disclosures can present challenges to parties executing transactions.
Join Kroll and Duane Morris to learn about the risks and opportunities offered by Vietnam. Richard Dailly, Managing Director at Kroll, Giles Cooper, Partner, and Manfred Otto, Associate at Duane Morris will share more about Vietnam as an investment destination, what the legal and political risks are of doing business there and how the new administration and free trade agreements could affect inward foreign investment.

In today’s complex and ever-changing security landscape, every C-Suite and Board knows of cyber risk, but what does it really mean to be prepared to respond to a data breach incident? Top executives do not have to become cyber security experts, but they must make sure their organization’s breach response plans and strategies are defined and set. While they will not directly lead technical, legal and notification efforts to address data breaches, they do need to act as internal champions of proper planning and prevention.
Identifying and closing security gaps, directing communication channels, and developing and regularly testing incident response plans are as important now as managing any other business risk or concern. Therefore, company leadership must take charge and direct their organizations to conduct extensive preparation efforts to mitigate those risks and make certain everyone stands ready to execute against the established procedures and policies when a breach occurs.
In this webinar, you will hear from experts who have been on the inside and outside of data breach response efforts. You will learn:
•Why the C-Suite and Board need to champion planning and prevention efforts.
•How to get Executive buy-in.
•Ways to build stronger response structures from the top.
•How to construct response architectures. Who needs to be responsible for what?
•Cyber Risk – What are the latest threats and what does the C-Suite and Board need to understand?
•Developing and directing an Incident Response Plan: Where do the C-Suite and Board fit in?
•Examples our experts have seen – the good and the bad

Gene Quinn and special guests look back at the most important moments of 2016, and consider the issues that look set to shape the patent industry in 2017
It is that time once again when we look back on the previous year in preparation to close the final chapter on 2016, and we begin to look ahead and ask what is in store for the new year.
Gene Quinn, patent attorney and founder of IPWatchdog.com, will moderate this discussion, alongside a panel of very special guests.
Join us as we discuss:
2016: The Year of the Patent Trial and Appeal Board – From the Supreme Court deciding Cuozzo, to the Federal Circuit spending much of the year rubber stamping the PTAB, it has been a rollercoaster year.
2016: Software Patents Strike Back – A series of Federal Circuit decisions post-Alice have started to provide meaningful insight into how software can be described so that it will be considered patent eligible.
2017: Regulatory Reform NOT Patent Reform – Patent reform will almost certainly not be a top priority for the Trump Administration, but regulatory reforms to the PTAB could be seen and may be quite significant and beneficial to patent owners.
2017: Supreme Court to Decide Samsung v. Apple - The decision will either validate the value of design patents or make design patents virtually worthless.
