The US Supreme Court heard oral argument and issued opinions in six different patent cases during its October 2013 term.  These new cases cover a wide range of substantive patent topics that will impact both patent owners and accused infringers.  Patent prosecutors and litigants also need to be familiar with and understand the implications of these decisions.

Join Practical Law and seasoned attorneys from Kramer Levin Naftalis & Frankel LLP on Wednesday, July 30 at 1:00 p.m. Eastern Time for a free webinar that will focus on the key lessons to be learned from the US Supreme Court's recent patent decisions, including:

  • The impact of Medtronic, Inc. v. Mirowski Family Ventures, LLC on declaratory judgment actions filed against patent owners.
  • The new challenges for inducement claims under the Limelight Networks, Inc. v. Akamai Techs., Inc. opinion.  What are the alternatives?
  • What indefiniteness really means in light of Nautilus, Inc. v. Biosig Instruments, Inc., including patent drafting and litigation strategies.
  • How to make the most of the Supreme Court's new attorney fee shifting standards, as articulated in Octane Fitness, LLC v. ICON Health & Fitness, Inc. and Highmark Inc. v. Allcare Health Mgmt. Sys. Inc.
  • Where software and business method patents stand in light of Alice Corp. Pty. Ltd. v. CLS Bank Int'l. Is there any guidance?  What, if anything, does the Supreme Court's §101 patent eligibility analysis add to the determination of novelty or obviousness under §§ 102 and 103?
A short Q&A session will follow.
