Patent law, and more significantly, patent litigation, has undergone some significant changes in the past few years. This webinar reviewed several of the noteworthy cases, and discussed how they affect a company’s reaction to patent litigation as well as a company’s decision to enforce its patents. The speakers discussed the changes affecting permanent injunctions, willful infringement, invalidity, and the ability to transfer cases to more favorable venues.
