CLE Class: The STRONGER Patents Act
December 12, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm ESTFree – $25
The STRONGER Patents Act was introduced to strengthen the position of the United States as the world’s leading innovator by amending Title 35, United States Code, to protect the property rights of the inventors that grow the country’s economy. The STRONGER Patents Act includes a number of changes to strengthen both the validity and enforceability of U.S. Patents. For example, if enacted, the Act would restore the presumption of injunctive relief upon a finding that a patent is both valid and infringed. Among other updates, The STRONGER Patents Act would also ensure a better balance between patent holders’ and challengers’ interests in administrative proceedings of the USPTO’s Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) by limiting repetitive and harassing challenges against inventors.
Instructor, Coulter “Coby” Henry, Senior Counsel, Intellectual Property, Rheem Manufacturing will discuss the current status of the bill, the changes presented in it, and how the changes could impact the decisions made by in-house IP counsel.
