Practising Law Institute (PLI) will be offering a one-hour webcast entitled "Capitalizing on Changes in Patent Law" on December 12, 2017 from 1:00 to 2:00 pm (Eastern). Jonathan Hill of Freeborn & Peters LLP will provide:
• An overview of the law of issue preclusion (collateral estoppel), which generally operates to preclude litigation over an issue previously decided in a final judgment, but for a change in the legal standard that governs the issue;
• An overview of the Therasense decision and characteristics of pre-Therasense unenforceability decisions which may merit re-litigation under the current law; and
• Considerations (e.g., lapse of patents for unpaid maintenance fees) which may influence the decision whether to newly enforce patents held unenforceable under pre-Therasense legal standards.
The registration fee for this webcast is $299. Those interested in registering for the webcast, can do so here.
