On Thursday, April 9 from 6:00pm - 9:00pm, Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney Shareholder Philip L. Hirschhorn will participate as faculty at the New York City Bar Association's CLE, titled "Patents 101."
The CLE is designed for non-intellectual property attorneys who want to better understand the property right conferred by a patent, by examining the processes for obtaining, enforcing and challenging a patent. Covered topics will include a comparison of the property right conferred by a patent to other intellectual property rights, and overviews of the process obtaining a patent from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and enforcing a patent against would-be infringers in federal court. Additional topics will cover mechanisms for challenging a competitor's patent in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, under the America Invents Act, enforcing a patent before the International Trade Commission, and ethical issues in obtaining and enforcing a patent.
