LIP 967 (01) - Patent Office Litigation

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.

CRN: 55833
The goal of this course is to review trademark and other state and federal law designed to protect commercial goodwill; to explore the tension between trademark and related rights as intangible commercial property, on the one hand, and as devices to further competition and to prevent consumer deception, on the other; to explore trademark-related issues raised by commerce and speech on the Internet; to evaluate the rights of authors, artists, and other celebrities to trademark-like protection of their personae; and to analyze advertising claims against the backdrop of consumer perception. (The U.S. is a common law country in which trademarks are established through use and not registration. This course does not address the process for federal trademark registration; rather, it approaches trademark law from the standpoint of establishing trademark validity and enforcing valid trademarks through litigation or other dispute resolution mechanisms.) Eligibility: Open to all except 1Ls. Course format: lecture. Grading: final exam, 70%; midterm exam, 30%. This course may be taken for an S/U grade.
