2006 Patent Law Highlights


Intellectual Property Litigation, Interferences, IP Due Diligence, Litigation, and Patent Litigation

San Diego


In addition to the Supreme Court’s consideration of whether to reject the Federal Circuit’s “Motivation to Combine” test for obviousness (KSR v. Teleflex), what other patent cases from 2006 will have the most impact in the future?

We will discuss these questions and more:

  • What is the scope of attorney-client privilege waiver once a defendant relies on its opinion of counsel as a defense to willful infringement?
  • Will the Federal Circuit defer to district courts’ Markman rulings?
  • Does a licensee have standing to challenge the validity of a licensed patent even if the licensee has not breached the agreement?
  • Is a patentee automatically entitled to an injunction against an infringer?

Who Should Attend:

Chief Scientific Officers, Directors and Managers of Intellectual Property Departments, and In-house Counsel

There is no charge to attend this seminar.
