October 2, 2018 LA hACCess: Essential Developments in Patents and Licensin2

RGP Offices
1000 Wilshire Blvd., Ste. 1600
Los Angeles, CA  90017

Patents and related intellectual property rights often are mission-critical assets for companies in diverse industries. As legal developments occur at a rapid pace, corporate counsel responsible for protecting and leveraging IP assets face a challenge to stay on top of the latest trends.
In this program, patent and IP lawyers from Brooks Kushman PC will discuss two areas of particular interest in in-house counsel:
The Evolving Nature of IPRs: Long thought of as a patent “death squad,” the USPTO’s Patent Trial and Appeal Board is retooling the inter partes review process to make it less hostile to patent owners. We will discuss the most recent court decisions and rule changes and how they affect IPRs.
Leveraging Patent Portfolios through Licensing (Without Excess Risk): The development of new technology, and the protection of that technology with patents, is a significant corporate investment. We will discuss strategies for leveraging that investment by licensing patents, and how to avoid common errors that may expose your company to unnecessary risks.
