2015 Scheduled Webinars
Privity and RPI at the PTAB, with Judge Michael Tierney
Thursday, June 4, at 2:00pm – 3:00pm ET
The significant estoppel provisions in the AIA –regarding PTAB proceedings, as well as U.S. district court and ITC litigation — apply not only to entities that are directly involved in adversarial proceedings, but also to those who are in privity to those entities. But just who is in privity or a real-party-in-interest in these situations? Many fact patterns can raise questions of privity in patent litigation, including joint-defense groups, manufacturer-customer ties, and parent-subsidiary relationships as a result of M&A, causing considerable uncertainty about how each case will play out in front of the PTAB. And the PTAB must evaluate privity in a way consistent not only with the AIA, but also with other federal case law.
This webinar, which features a well-known PTAB trial judge, will analyze the statutes and the case law, and discuss strategic considerations regarding privity and post-grant proceedings.
