Pamela Sherrid, who hosts Intellectual Property Owners Association’s excellent series of legal webinars, is offering a session this week and one next week on post-grant proceedings and parallel infringement litigation. The fee is $120 per user per webinar and requires registration at ipo.org/IPChatChannel.
I will let her description of the events speak for itself:
Wednesday August 28 – 2 PM ET
Versata v. SAP and Fresenius v. Baxter:
Res Judicata and Estoppel in Post-grant Proceedings and Concurrent Litigation
Bernard Knight, USPTO
Jeffrey Kushan, Sidley Austin
Scott Daniels, Westerman Hattori Daniels & Adrian
The panel on August 28 in Versata v. SAP and Fresenius v. Baxter: Res Judicata and Estoppel in Post-grant Proceedings and Concurrent Litigation, will examine what happens when the PTAB and the Federal Circuit come to different conclusions about the same patent at different times. Our panel will consider the procedural stance of the two named cases, enumerate other conflicting situations that are likely to emerge, and discuss what legal principles will prevail to solve the resulting conundrums.
Wednesday September 4 – 2 PM ET
Filing a Post-grant Proceeding
with Concurrent Litigation:
Erika Arner, Finnegan
Dion Bregman, Morgan Lewis
Juliana Mirabilio, Oracle
Figuring out all implications of Filing a Post-grant Proceeding with Concurrent Litigation, is no easy task, and being surprised by a twist or turn could result in a litigation disaster. For instance, claim construction arguments must be coordinated between the two venues. The panel of the September 4 webinar on Strategic Considerations will consider the key issues of stays, estoppel, claim construction and settlement.
