2015 Patent Litigation Developments: The New Yin and Yang of Litigating Patents in the Wake of the AIA

2015 Michael Best Litigation Seminar

Jon Margolies and Marshall Schmitt will address recent developments in patent litigation, which has been transformed by the advent of post-grant review created by the America Invents Act (AIA). This session will address recent developments from two perspectives: (1) litigation in federal district court and (2) post-grant review practice before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB). The first segment will focus on the demise of software patents in light of Alice, the rapid evolution of limits on damages and the availability of stays pending post-grant proceedings. The second segment will focus on lurking issues of estoppel that might undermine stays in the future, the fate of the first round of appeals of PTAB decisions and the amendments to the rules of procedure based on the PTAB’s experience to date.
