January 20, 2012
American Bar Association (ABA) Section of Intellectual Property Law, Young Lawyers Division
Live Webinar: January 20, 2012, 1:00 - 2:30 pm (Eastern)

The Supreme Court's decision in KSR v. Teleflex was widely discussed. On September 1, 2010, the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) released updated examination guidelines that provide guidance to examiners and practitioners for analyzing obviousness.

Zachary Stern from Oblon, Spivak will be one of the panelists who will explore how the KSR standards have been applied in various technology areas and provide guidance for effective avenues of argument based on the technology area.

The panel will also discuss various arguments that may be effective, but may also narrow the scope of arguments that can be made during litigation.
