Annual IP Case Law Review
Date: November 04, 2010
Location:San Diego
CommNexus Presents: Annual IP Case Law Review. Join in a panel discussion of the cases that were decided and that have affected the landscape of patent law this past year. Several of the cases decided this year have had a very high profile, including Wyeth v. Kappos, in which the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit held that the Patent and Trademark Office (PTO) had calculated term extensions for patents incorrectly in some instances. The result is that some patents may have a longer term than the PTO had originally indicated. Many of you may have heard about the famous Bilski case decided in U.S. Supreme Court which affected whether software and business methods are patentable. Additional cases have been decided by the CAFC since Bilski that will help to sort out some of the questions that remained after the Bilski decision. The panel will also discuss the issues of severance and transfer in multi-defendant litigations and cases related thereto. These cases and several others will help you stay current on the latest happenings in patent law. See
