Decreasing the USPTO's Incentive to Grant Invalid Patents

Many believe the USPTO is issuing too many invalid patents that are unnecessarily reducing consumer welfare, stunting productive research, and discouraging innovation. To date, patent policy reforms to increase patent quality at the USPTO have been overly reliant on anecdotes and hunches. Review new empirical studies of the administrative process for granting patents which propose three changes to the patent system that would reduce the issuance of patents of questionable validity.

Defending Against Willful Infringement in a Post-Halo World

With the changes resulting from the Supreme Court’s Halo opinion, there is additional importance placed on accused infringers in building a record that supports reasonableness of their decision to continue their accused operations. This often includes advice of competent counsel used to bolster the claim that they were not acting with subjective bad faith. Those using advice of counsel in defense of willfulness must be mindful of the scope of potential privilege waiver, and proactively take steps aimed at avoiding privilege waiver from extending to communications with trial counsel.
