Almost nine years have passed since the enactment of the Leahy-Smith America Invents Act (AIA). Patents filed on or after March 16, 2013, which are subject to some of the AIA’s most significant changes, are now being litigated. Please join us on Wednesday, June 10, for a webinar discussing key defenses to infringement under the AIA. The program will feature WilmerHale IP Litigation Partners Christopher R. Noyes and Omar A. Khan, as well as Kelly A. Todd, an associate in our practice.
Topics of discussion will include:
- Infringement defenses made available by the AIA, including the expansion of prior user rights.
- Invalidity defenses based on additional qualifying disclosures of the invention, including what qualifies as “public use,” “on-sale” or “otherwise available to the public.”
- Changes to the temporal scope of prior art and exceptions to prior art under the AIA.
