Patent systems and patent laws exist to promote investment in and development of technology. The recently-enacted America Invents Act (AIA) and certain U.S. Supreme Court decisions over the last 5 years have brought the most dramatic changes to U.S. patent law in more than 50 years. This course focuses on the fundamentals of U.S. patent law including patentability, infringement, inventorship, and ownership. The course will also explore some of the underlying themes in patent law as well as the purpose of and justifications for a patent system. The course reading includes the patent statute (Title 35 of the United States Code) both pre-AIA and post-AIA and selected case law primarily from the U.S. Supreme Court and U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. The course will generally address both the procurement and enforcement of U.S. patents. Although this course will cover the legal principles underlying patent claim drafting and patentability, this course will not focus on patent practice and procedure.

LIP 967 (01) - Patent Office Litigation

Patent Office Litigation includes powerful proceedings for challenging the validity of a U.S. patent. Learn to assess various options for clients and maximize potential positive outcomes of the process, regardless of your client's legal position, in a practical, hands-on, two-day intensive Master Class. Patent Office Litigation refers to post grant proceedings before the USPTO. This class previously focused on ex parte and inter partes reexamination. The Leahy-Smith America Invents Act (AIA) created new proceedings for challenging the validity of patents at the USPTO and did away with inter partes reexamination. These new proceedings include inter partes review, post grant review, and covered business method proceedings. The course now focuses on basic strategy considerations, procedure and practice tips for these new proceedings as well as for ex parte reexamination. Since a large number of inter partes reexaminations are still pending before the USPTO, that proceeding will also be briefly covered. Eligibility: Open to all except 1Ls. Prerequisites: Patent Practice and Procedure I. Course enrollment is limited to 20 students. Course format: skills training. Grading: other (see syllabus), 100%. This course must be taken for an S/U grade.

In the world of intellectual property, international borders can be both nebulous and critically important. The rapid development of international trade and information technologies makes it increasingly important for lawyers to understand the international aspects of practicing intellectual property law, particularly those aspects involving copyrights, trademarks and patents. Media (including books, music, and movies) can be easily uploaded to the Internet and copied and made instantaneously available everywhere in the world. Products implicating multiple patents and trademarks can be designed and developed in one country, assembled in another, and imported and marketed in still a third. Clients may need to enforce their rights against foreign parties domestically or overseas, or to engage in international licensing transactions. This course will provide a survey of cross-border legal issues that general face lawyers who counsel clients on matters of intellectual property and international trade. The course will introduce the basic contours of international principles, treaties, and institutions regarding intellectual property, and will introduce significant substantive and procedural differences between the United States and other countries in the world. Eligibility: Open to all except 1Ls. Course format: lecture. Grading: other (see syllabus), 100%. This course may be taken for an S/U grade.

This course will provide students with a basic insight into the process of copyright and trademark litigation, from the inception of a case through its progress at various stages in federal court. Real-life documents, case law and examples will be used to enable students to analyze copyright and trademark enforcement problems, with a view toward developing the skills necessary to counsel clients through the litigation process. Eligibility: Open to all except 1Ls. Prerequisites: Fundamentals of IP; or Copyright Law; or Trademark Law. Course enrollment is limited to 20 students. Course format: skills training. Grading: other (see syllabus), 100%. This course must be taken for an S/U grade.
