Patent Office Litigation By the Numbers: How effective are the new procedures for resolving litigation? And how dangerous are the new procedures to your own patents?

Wayne Stacy/Molly Kocialski
Cooley LLP/Oracle America, Inc.
SPEAKER BIOGRAPHIES

The America Invents Act implemented new proceedings for reviewing the patentability of issued patents. These new procedures have already profoundly changed patent litigation and patent prosecution. But change does not necessarily correlate with effectiveness. How effective are these procedures in resolving patent litigation? And do they pose a threat to your own patents? Too often these questions are answered based on hyperbole and personal, past experiences with patent litigation. Drawing from a proprietary dataset of over 150,000 data points culled from the Patent Office records, this presentation provides objective answers about the effectiveness of using AIA proceedings to challenge patents and the risks they pose to your own patent portfolio.

Protecting Patents During a PTAB Trial

Eliot Williams
Baker Botts
SPEAKER BIOGRAPHIES

Based on early results of Patent Trial and Appeals Board Trials under the America Invents Act, the panels of the PTAB have been called "death squads, killing prope1iy rights," potentially threatening the value of many sizable patent portfolios. Presenter Eliot Williams, who testified before the House Judiciary Committee in its hearings regarding implementation the AIA, will review strategies that have been successful for patent owners in PTAB trials to-date. Mr. Williams will also discuss tactical options for the Patent Owner to employ in order to minimize the disruption that a PTAB Trial could have on IP portfolio value and patent enforcement programs.
