On April 23, 2012, Daniel P. DiNapoli will speak at PLI's Fundamentals of Patent Litigation Seminar in New York. Along with the other PLI faculty members, Daniel will discuss what makes patent litigation different from other types of litigation, from the Rule 11 pre-filing investigation through the appeal to the Federal Circuit. Attendees will learn important practical details including who to sue and what to put in the complaint. Learn what discovery is needed in a patent case and how discovery differs from other civil litigation. Disclosures of infringement and invalidity contentions, the claim construction process at and leading up to the Markman hearing will also be examined. Find out what is needed to prove infringement and how a patent may be invalidated by prior art or rendered unenforceable by inequitable conduct. Hear what can be expected at trial and what remedies are available. Speakers will also discuss alternative forums, including the International Trade Commission, and review appeals to the Federal Circuit, and how it and the Supreme Court are reshaping patent law and patent litigation.
