Induced/joint patent infringement in Global-Tech and Golden Hour

Presented by

Managing IP, Oblon Spivak, Microsoft Corporation

About this talk

The Supreme Court’s recent decision to hear Global-Tech v SEB and the result of Golden Hour Data Systems v emsCharts and Softtech at the Federal Circuit have brought the topics of induced and joint patent infringement to the fore. Both cases will have major implications for the way courts assess these two doctrines. This webinar will provide background on the cases and on the topics of indirect and divided infringement generally, with a focus on post-grant procedure options for fixing claims prior to assertion, including patent reissuance and re-examination. Speakers: Eileen McDermott, Managing IP Scott McKeown, Oblon Spivak John Mulgrew, Microsoft Corporation

‘What keeps in-house counsel awake at night?’ is one way to summarise our editorial focus. We aim to track the strategies of in-house IP counsel within companies, big and small, by speaking directly to them about the day-to-day issues they face. Law firms need practical information that they can apply when advising their clients, and companies find value in benchmarking their strategies with those of their peers. This is why we have adopted this approach in our subscription-based service. Our content is not reactionary or news-focused, but informed and actionable. In this pursuit of in-house intelligence, we also publish several surveys each year that include exclusive data focusing on specific industry issues. These polls allow us to provide an accurate snapshot of how in-house counsel perceive and act on a given issue. Our other core objective is interviewing senior judges, whose insight is valuable for many IP stakeholders. We find that the judiciary are vital for giving counsel, private and in-house, highly useful information for when they are locked in litigation. We continue to speak regularly with IP offices too. Regardless of its specific intent, our coverage is global and encompasses (but is not limited to) the following areas: Copyright; Data; Designs; Patents; Trademarks; and Trade secrets
