Patent Drafting: Tips for Avoiding and Arguing 112 Rejections

The patent specification has always been a critical part of the patent application, but the specification has become increasingly important in recent years. Gone are the days of cheap patents with thin disclosures.

While it remains necessary to draft patent applications carefully, and cautiously, so as to not run afoul of KSR v. Teleflex, courts seem increasingly skeptical of patents and patent applications that do not explain what the innovation really is, and why it is an improvement.

What does this changing landscape mean for patent application drafting best practices? What tips and tricks should be employed in order to provide a specification that has maximal opportunity for success during examination? How can you effectively and persuasively frame arguments in responses?

Join Gene Quinn, President and CEO of IPWatchdog, Inc, along with Bob Ryan, Partner with Holland & Hart, on Thursday, January 31, 2019 at 2:00 pm (noon) EDT, for a free webinar conversation on the trends and reality of 112 disclosure requirements and responding to 112 rejections.

Identifying and Pursuing Patent Infringers: Using Technical Evidence to Build Your Assertion Campaign

At its heart, an assertion campaign relies on Evidence of Use (EoU), to demonstrate the existence of ongoing infringement. If no one is using the technology covered by your patent portfolio then your patents are not as valuable. Conversely, when there is EoU the value of a patent portfolio is greater.

Of course, EoU is not binary; the stronger the EoU, the more likely a favorable outcome will be achieved by the patent owner. Unfortunately, building EoU for advanced technology products can be challenging, because advanced product testing or reverse engineering may be required.  And, while the indications of use may help get infringers to the negotiating table, these theoretical indications are less lucrative than fact-based EoU.

Join Gene Quinn, President and CEO of IPWatchdog, Inc, on Thursday, May 2, 2019 at 12:00 pm (noon) EDT, for a free webinar discussing the process of identifying infringers and building a solid, fact-based case that will clearly establish Evidence of Use, which will provide maximal value to your patent portfolio. Joining Gene will be Martin Bijman, Director of IP Products for TechInsights. The panel will discuss infringement and proving infringement, framing the discussion by analyzing the development of EoU for mobile radio frequency (RF) products.

Dissecting Alice at 5: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Five years ago the United States Supreme Court issued a decision in Alice Corp. v. CLS Bank, 134 S.Ct. 2347 (2014), which significantly changed the way courts and patent examiners evaluated patent eligibility of computer implemented innovation in the United States.

Join Gene Quinn, President and CEO of IPWatchdog, Inc., on Thursday, June 20, 2019 at 2pm EDT for a special free webinar discussion focusing on the Alice decision five years later. Joining Gene for this special webinar will be Drew Hirshfeld, Commissioner for Patents at the United States Patent and Trademark Office, who will discuss how the USPTO is handling patent eligibility today.

Also joining Gene for this discussion will be patent litigator and appeals specialist Meredith “Mimi” Addy, founding partner of AddyHart, PC, Kent Richardson, founding partner of the ROL Group and one of the leading experts on patent monetization and licensing practices in the United States and Russ Slifer, Principal, Schwegman Lundberg & Woessner and Former Deputy Under Secretary of Commerce for Intellectual Property and Deputy Director of the USPTO.
