Do you want to learn how the America Invents Act (AIA) and recent decisions of the Supreme Court and Federal Circuit have affected the due diligence process?  Then you should attend the course Patent Due Diligence in the AIA Era at the Spring 2013 Advanced Courses Program from April 11-13, 2013 at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress in Orlando, Florida. The three faculty members, Bryan Diner, Anthony Gutowski, and Andrew Holtman, have many years of experience in IP practice and expertise in several different areas of technology.  These faculty members have also collectively participated in over 100 due diligence evaluations.

The lively and entertaining presentation covers every phase of a due diligence investigation.  During the course, you will interact with instructors and other students while exploring case-study examples and lecture topics on a wide range of issues:

  • common legal-interest agreements
  • claim construction
  • freedom to operate
  • validity assessments
  • inequitable conduct
  • patent eligibility, and
  • ownership/transferability

The knowledge you’ll gain from this course will enable you to avoid due diligence pitfalls, while more effectively assessing and managing risks endemic in business transactions involving complex IP rights and issues.

If you want to get concrete patent drafting and negotiating advice with precise references to existing law, then attend the comprehensive Drafting Patent License Agreements course at the Spring 2013 Advanced Courses Program from April 11-13, 2013 at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress in Orlando, Florida. Faculty members for this course include patent law experts Patrick O’Reilley, Brian Kacedon, and William Pratt. The course lays the groundwork for a clause-by-clause examination of all significant elements of the patent licensing agreement. The practical questions always focused on are how and whether each element is sufficient to serve the business needs of the parties while remaining legally viable. The main components of typical licensing agreements, from the opening part through the execution and authentication provisions, are examined in detail. Practical, hypothetical illustrative examples are used, often in workshop form, with carefully crafted problem handouts distributed to the attendees during the course.

Throughout the course, the faculty members emphasize achieving legally satisfactory drafting results by recognizing the logical principles that underlie the job to be done. Sample forms are used to explain the practical considerations upon which they are based. Law and precedent are presented in terms that make clear the legal reasoning behind recommended drafting approaches. Legal ethics in license negotiations will be presented during the afternoon session on Day 2 and in misuse issues during the morning session of Day 3, as currently estimated.

Learn how to assist your clients in developing competitive, non-infringing products by attending the extremely popular “Designing Around” Valid U.S. Patents course at the Spring 2013 Advanced Courses Program from April 7-9, 2013 at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress in Orlando, Florida.  PRG has offered the “Designing Around” Valid U.S. Patents course for 15 years, and it remains one of the most popular course offerings. Instructors for this course include esteemed patent law experts Patrick Burns, John Pinkerton, Patricia Prior, and Robert Turner.  This course will show practitioners representing potential infringers how to counsel competitive product design under the guidance of Federal Circuit and Supreme Court cases, which will almost always be viewed as effective “designing around.”

This course will explore the current condition of claim construction in detail and explain how competitors can use it to their advantage, even when the claims on their face are literally infringed. Four cookbooks are provided, covering:

  • literal infringement.
  • infringement under the doctrine of equivalents.
  • infringement of means plus function claim elements.
  • prosecution history estoppel.

Using and following these cookbooks, which distill opinions by the Federal Circuit and the Supreme Court in cases from Pennwalt to Festo IX, any patent practitioner can counsel his or her client on how to “design around” the patented invention with almost certain impunity – a design that appropriates the patented invention and that, prior to Pennwalt and its progeny, would have been held an infringement rather than the socially desirable activity of “designing around.”

To ensure no confusion on anyone’s part in this exercise, the faculty and students will go through several claim construction exercises and compare their conclusions with the Federal Circuit’s claim construction in actual cases. A mock design around exercise will also be presented. The demonstration considers client, marketing and engineering perspectives, in addition to legal analysis.

  • Course Materials: The two-volume text for “Designing Around” Valid U.S. Patents is authored by the distinguished course faculty, each of whom has extensive successful litigation, prosecution and counseling experience.

We are pleased to announce a new one-day seminar, presented jointly by Management Forum and Patent Resources Group, that will cover what all patent attorneys need to know about the European Unitary Patent and Unified Court. This ground-breaking seminar will be held at the Spring 2013 Advanced Courses Program on April 10, 2013 at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress in Orlando, Florida.

On June 29, 2012, the European Council decided on the seat of the central division of the new Unified Patent Court.  The EU Parliament is expected to conclude the negotiations imminently on the EU’s future unitary patent system.  The new single patent litigation system proposed, embodied in the Unified Patent Court, will have exclusive competence in respect of actions relating to the validity or infringement of a European unitary patent.  It is essential for all patent practitioners to know how this new system will work and how to formulate strategies for working with – or without – it.  This course provides an essential guide to all these issues, presented by leading practitioners from the UK and Germany.

The course includes presentation of simple decision and timing flowcharts intended for re-use by attendees in their own presentations to colleagues, for efficient and professional dissemination of know-how across businesses.
