Recent Changes in U.S. Patent Law and How You Can Profit From Them.

The historic America Invents Act was phased in from 2011 to 2013. Additional legislative changes to U.S. patent law have been proposed and are pending in Congress. The number of U.S. patents issued annually is at a near all-time high. Patent protection can drastically change a company's market share, and patents frequently make or break deals for companies that own or use new technology.

The way in which courts used to interpret US patent laws have been changed. The U.S. Supreme Court issued nine patent decisions in 2014 and the first half of 2015. It has been noted that three times the number of decision has been issued since 2005 by the court since than it used to do in the preceding ten-year period.

Case Study to be discussed:

On August 5, 2015 a USPTO examiner decided on reexamination that an Apple patent underlying its $548 million award against Samsung is invalid. The smartphone patent war between Apple and Samsung has been ongoing since 2011. The numbers have been staggering, beginning with a 2012 jury verdict awarding Apple $1 billion in damages. Now Apple faces a new challenge ... the invalidity of a key patent involved in the dispute. Mr. McCann will discuss the problem and how Apple could have avoided it.

U.S. patent law has changed dramatically and this presentation by expert speaker Clifton E. McCann will give attendees the knowledge to benefit from the changes.
