August 23, 2016

On August 23, at 12:00 PM (CST) Craig Buschmann and Linda Nattler will be speaking at the Brinks webinar entitled, “Diving into the (Patent) Pool & Specification and Claim Drafting to Avoid Indefiniteness.”

Overview:

Diving into the (Patent) Pool - A Comparative Review of Automakers' Licensing Strategies

Patents and patent pools may serve several purposes. An examination of Tesla’s open-source/license free pool, particularly when we compare it to the patent pools/licensing schemes of Tesla’s more established competitors, Toyota and Ford, illuminates several possible reasons and goals behind each company’s strategy.

Specification and Claim Drafting to Avoid Indefiniteness

Beginning with a discussion of the Supreme Court decision in Nautilis v. Biosig Instruments as background this presentation will then review more recent Federal Circuit decisions post-Nautilis involving chemical patents. Next will be practice tips for specification and claim drafting in view of Nautilis and its progeny to avoid potential indefiniteness pitfalls during prosecution and when trying to enforce issued patents.
