PLI Webcast

Obtain a working understanding of recent interpretations, case law, along with some perspective on the future of both.

What Attendees Will Learn

  • 102 and its dates: is there a “grace period” for a secret sale?
  • Understanding the “effective filing date” in global terms
  • Analyzing 102 – pre- and post-AIA
  • A comprehensive review of KSR and 103 via the CAFC and PTAB
  • Impact of benefit claims on the prior art date of a reference and the effective filing date of the application being examined
