In 19,000 pending disputes at the PTO Board, the problem is “obviousness.”  Dilworth IP’s Jon Schuchardt will be a presenter at the upcoming Strafford webinar: “Obviousness Standard After the AIA: Leveraging Latest PTO and Court Guidance.”  The live 90-minute webinar with interactive Q&A starts at 1:00 p.m. EST on Thursday, November 14th.

Convergence of the AIA, the Supreme Court’s KSR v. Teleflex decision, the USPTO’s post-KSR guidelines, and recent Federal Circuit rulings have created a rapidly evolving obviousness standard that is more confusing than ever. Practitioners need to understand the latest developments in order to successfully prepare, prosecute, and defend patents.
