Opportunities and threats in the changing IP-landscape in the US
Thursday, November 20, Zacco Göteborg, Östra Hamngatan 5, 401 22 Göteborg
Zacco invites you to an interesting seminar about the recent developments in the IP-landscape in the US with one of the most experienced attorneys in US infringement litigation, Eric H. Weisblatt from Wiley Rein and Sarah Rodriguez from Zacco.
Recent developments in the US including the Alice case have had remarkable impact on the “patent trolls” and the way they operate. Typically, these “trolls” have enforced broad software and business methods patents with disturbing consequences for companies doing business in the US. These type of patents are now invalidated by multiple district courts. However, even though the threats from some “trolls” may be reduced, there is still a need for paying thorough attention to your and your competitors IP in the US.
Your take away from the day will include a handful of good and easy-to-use advice for companies having and planning activities in the US.
