Upcoming Free Webinar: Now that the Dust has Settled for the AIA – Where We’ve Been, Where We Are, and Where We Need to Go
William R. Reid, Partner at Dilworth IP, will be hosting a FREE webinar on Wednesday, July 20th at 1:00 PM (EDT). This entry in the Dilworth IP Webinar Series is entitled Now that the Dust has Settled for the AIA – Where We’ve Been, Where We Are, and Where We Need to Go, and will focus on the Leahy-Smith America Invents Act (AIA) of 2012. The AIA is widely recognized as causing the most significant change to the U.S. patent system since 1952, and Mr. Reid will consider its impact on both patent procurement and enforcement. In particular, he will address the trends in the new post-grant proceedings, the significant issues which still need further clarification from the Federal Circuit, and the potential additions/corrections to the AIA to expect in the future. This presentation will provide patent practitioners and owners with the information they need to guide their patent strategies in light of the AIA as well as looking at how the AIA has been applied over the last three years, with an eye toward some of its ongoing issues.
