You have a patent, you suspect infringement. Now what? As part of USPTO’s continued outreach efforts to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), the USPTO will host a multi-panel webinar covering patent enforcement fundamentals for SMEs thinking about enforcing their patents. The webinar will feature three panels of experts, each addressing different aspects of patent enforcement in the U.S. system. The panelists will include judges, in-house counsel, government experts, and litigation counsel, and will address litigation before United States District Courts and the United States International Trade Commission, and administrative proceedings before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board.
A detailed agenda will be posted to this page at least one week before the program date.
This program is presented by the USPTO’s Global Intellectual Property Academy, a unit of the USPTO’s Office of Policy and International Affairs (OPIA). OPIA advises the administration and other federal government departments and agencies on domestic and international IP legal and policy issues. It also provides technical assistance and training on IP-related matters to U.S. stakeholders and both U.S. and foreign government officials.
