Recent Developments in Claim Construction (Jan 2024)

The baseline of patent application preparation/prosecution, district court trials, Federal Circuit appeals, and AIA post-grant review proceedings, is claim construction. Review the important 2022-2023 claim construction cases and issues at the Federal Circuit and trial court levels, as well as at the PTAB. Examine the PTAB’s procedural and substantive claim construction “rules, practices, and etc." Discuss adherence to the APA by the PTAB under various circumstances. And, discuss the claim construction interface between an IPR and a parallel district court proceeding.

Does Intelligence Equal Competence? Navigating Artificial Intelligence in the Practice of Law (Jan 2024)

Artificial Intelligence may be embedded in tools, or may even be a tool itself, that helps lawyers better meet client needs. But, it is no different than other conventional tools and technologies used by lawyers—they must be used in conjunction with a lawyer’s duty to provide competent representation.

IP Considerations for Generative AI (Jan 2024)

My company is at the edge of technology: we use generative AI for software development to invent a new product. Should and can we file a patent application naming the generative AI as an inventor, and what patenting strategy should we adopt? What are the IP implications of using open source software (OSS) to train the generative AI or if the generative AI itself is an OSS model?

Uncertain Times: When Does IPR Estoppel Apply? (Jan 2024)

While the Supreme Court passed on an opportunity to define the scope of IPR estoppel, the Federal Circuit clarified the burden of proof for establishing estoppel and adopted the “skilled searcher” standard in Ironburg v. Valve. Districts courts, however, remain split on whether IPR estoppel applies to product prior art under 35 USC §§ 102(a) or 102(b) that is described by patents and/or printed publications. This presentation explores how district courts are applying the “skilled searcher” standard, and the continued split in district courts as to whether product prior art falls within the scope of IPR estoppel.

Strategic Advantages and Disadvantages of Post Grant Review (Jan 2024)

In the first 9 months after a patent issues, an inter partes review is not available but a post grant review is available and can be raised on any issue, not just 102-103 on prior printed publications and this presents unique opportunities and problems. It permits 101 grounds, and also 112 grounds, as well as prior art that are not printed publications. The estoppel provision for PGR matches its breadth, which means that if you file a PGR you lose any defenses not raised in the PTAB, and could be forced to trial only on infringement and if available, inequitable conduct and other equitable defenses.
