The Supreme Court's Past Year and Coming Year - How Its Decisions Will Affect Your Day-to-Day IP Practice

This webinar has ended.


Recent Supreme Court decisions on intellectual property law have changed the world in which IP attorneys work, and the Court shows no sign of slowing down. You likely know the facts and general holdings of recent decisions on split infringement, Section 101, indefiniteness, and copyright laches. But have you thought harder about how the decisions may play out in the coming years for your practice - extending into obvious and not-so-obvious areas? This presentation will review the holdings and provide useful advice for prosecutors, litigators, and transactional attorneys.

  • POM Wonderful LLC v. Coca-Cola Co. - Lanham Act claims not preempted by FDCA labeling requirements
  • Alice Corp. Pty. Ltd. V. CLS Bank Int'l - Emphasizing limits on software claims' patent eligibility
  • Nautilus v. Biosig - Addressing the standard for invalidating patent claims for indefiniteness
  • Limelight Networks v. Akamai - Eliminating the Federal Circuit's rationale for split infringement, but leaving open other options for finding infringement by two parties
  • Octane Fitness and Highmark - Changing the standard for awarding attorney fees
  • Petrella v. MGM - Largely eliminating laches as a defense in copyright lawsuits
