On April 26, 2018, Drew Shores delivered a Patent Law Year in Review presentation as part of the North Carolina Bar Association's 2018 IP Institute for Paralegals. The presentation discussed the important patent law decisions of the past year and explained the effects they have on patent practitioners.
The review included not only decisions from the U.S. Supreme Court and Federal Circuit but also important decisions of the Patent Trial and Appeal Board as they relate to Inter parties review proceedings. Drew also highlighted the status of legislative patent law reforms and discussed what legislative changes may (or may not) be coming in the near future. For more information on the event, click below.
