Course Materials

This CLE course will guide patent counsel on withstanding the challenges of today's U.S. patent system in the hopes of earning billions of dollars in revenue with U.S. patents, properly extending market exclusivities, and keeping competitors off the market with strong U.S. patents. The panel will offer best practices to solidify novelty, non-obviousness, enablement, and written description positions, as well as review success stories during due diligence to motivate the suitor to pay maximum dollars.

Description

Companies and inventors are always looking to make their inventions the next big thing. A triumphant invention needs more than just a patent. It requires vigilance and a clear path to achieve success. Inventors and their counsel need to be able to take advantage of the tools that are available to them. They can also learn from how others have patented their inventions and the paths they have taken to make them billion-dollar patents.

There are principles of power to employ and traps to avoid on the way to obtaining strong and enforceable U.S. patents, which will hold up in post-grant proceedings and litigation. The things that counsel should consider are how to minimize risks from inequitable conduct, unclean hands, and other pernicious acts; how to position the client's patents in due diligence to maximize return; and drafting and prosecuting patents to be valid and enforceable. Understanding how to create and manage IP assets that will withstand changes and generate value is critical.

Listen as our authoritative panel of patent attorneys discusses withstanding the challenges of today's U.S. patent system in the hopes of earning billions of dollars in revenue with U.S. patents, properly extending market exclusivities, and keeping competitors off the market with strong U.S. patents. The panel will offer best practices to solidify novelty, non-obviousness, enablement, and written description positions and review success stories during due diligence to motivate the suitor to pay maximum dollars.
