Ryan Koppelman and James Abe will be speaking during the MCLE session “Leveraging the Right Venues for Successful Patent Litigation” at the LAIPLA Spring Seminar 2019 hosted by the Los Angeles Intellectual Property Law Association.
With the introduction of the America Invents Act in 2011 and the attendant explosion of post-grant proceedings, venue changes precipitated by the Supreme Court’s decision in TC Heartland, and the worldwide IP implications of global enterprises, patent disputes can play out in multiple venues. Each venue—whether the USPTO, U.S. district courts, the ITC, international courts, or arbitrations around the globe—comes with a different set of rules, differing (and often contradictory) legal standards, different timelines, and vastly different costs. This panel will discuss the venue decisions to be considered when pursuing or defending patent rights.
