Sterne, Kessler, Goldstein & Fox invites you to a webinar, "Federal Circuit Appeals from the PTAB and ITC: Summaries of Key 2021 Decisions," on Thursday, February 17, 2022.
In conjunction with the release of the firm's year-in-review report, speakers will offer case summaries and analysis of the significant 2021 appellate rulings discussed in the report. Topics of the featured intellectual property cases include: publication status, non-obviousness for design patents, prosecution laches and other estoppels, agency preclusion, intervening rights in PTAB cases, whether forum selection clauses can bar PTAB proceedings, and challenges made to PTAB discretionary denial practices under the NHK-Fintiv standard. The report also recaps two U.S. Supreme Court decisions with implications for patent practitioners: United States v. Arthrex and Minerva Surgical, Inc. v. Hologic, Inc.
