The Institute is designed to be of ultimate practice value to all three subgroups in the patent law community: patent prosecutors, patent litigators, and transactional lawyers. The two-day schedule includes six plenary sessions of interest to all patent lawyers and six breakout sessions in each of the three subgroups.
Faculty member Sharif Jacob will present "Non-Practicing Entities: What's the Big Deal?" He will address:
- Infringement begins with claim construction:what is an NPE?
- Perspectives on whether NPE litigation is a problem.
- Overview of legislative and judicial responses to NPE litigation
- Tales from the front lines:strategies for trying and defending NPE cases.
