This CLE webinar will guide patent counsel on identifying and addressing patent infringement risks in the product development process. The panel will examine how the courts have applied Halo and offer strategies for minimizing patent infringement risk.

Description

New product development creates important business opportunities but also raises significant IP risks. IP is an essential business asset and in each phase of development counsel should evaluate the risk of patent infringement.

In Halo Electronics v. Pulse Electronics (U.S. 2016), the Supreme Court relaxed the standard for establishing willful infringement, leaving alleged infringers vulnerable to enhanced damages. Consequently, identifying and managing infringement risk is more important in the product development process.

Patent counsel should establish and implement search and analysis strategies to uncover enforceable patents that may prove to be a roadblock for the development and marketing of a product.

Listen as our authoritative panel of patent attorneys discusses identifying and addressing patent infringement risk as part of the product development process. The panel will examine how the courts have applied Halo and offer guidance for minimizing patent infringement risk.
