Mastering the Global Patent Game – What US IP & Business Professionals Need to Know to Increase Client Economic Influence While Side-Stepping Traps

September 10, 2014 @ 11:30 am - 2:00 pm

$50 – $55

This presentation will cover:

• The European approach to patents for computer implemented inventions. Following the decision in CLS Bank v Alice, should Europe be considered more favorably disposed to software patents than the US?

• Pre-action discovery. Some European countries have a very liberal approach to pre-action discovery and inspection. This can provide an effective vehicle to gather evidence of infringement that can be used in other jurisdictions such as the US.

• German without notice injunctions. In Germany, it is possible for a rights holder to obtain an injunction without prior notice to the injuncted party. This can provide valuable leverage in litigation in other jurisdictions.

• Threats of patent litigation can provide helpful leverage in US litigation – but if it is not done in the right way it can expose the maker of the threat to a damages claim.

• The anticipated European Unitary Patent Court will provide a single patent system for a market as big as the US market – might it provide an alternative to patent litigation in the US? – an update on the implementation of the court.
