Design Patent Litigation


The law surrounding validity, infringement, claim construction, and damages in the design patent context is notably less developed than in the utility patent context. Nevertheless, courts have fashioned a robust body of case law to guide their decisions in these disputes. Just as patent prosecution strategy is shaped by the unique characteristics of design patents, owners of such patents must also consider unique issues when preparing for and engaging in litigation.

On September 7, join Principals Conrad Gosen and Joseph Herriges for the final installment of our three-part design patent webinar series, a discussion of design patent litigation. Topics will include:

  • An overview of design patent litigation
  • The differences between design and utility patent litigation
