Practical Aspects of Patent Reform


You've seen many presentations regarding particular provisions of the America Invents Act (AIA), and the details about those provisions. This webinar looks instead at general, practical actions you should be taking to prepare for the roll-out of the AIA. For example, the presentation will talk about:

Why the written description requirement may have an out-sized role in patent practice under the AIA
Why you may need to re-think your approach to trade secrets and patents
The phases you might see in filing strategies under "first-inventor-to-file," and which you might want to skip
Programs you may want to establish soon to track your web sites and your competitors' filings
