The Ins & Outs of Related Proceedings Before the ITC & PTAB
Time & Location
About the Event
Virtual Patent Gateway (VPG) is excited to host Khue V. Hoang, Philip Eklem, and Connor Houghton, elite practitioners from Reichman Jorgensen Lehman & Feldberg, as they engage in a lively educational conversation about the International Trade Commission (ITC) and the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, two popular forums for patent litigation. Although these areas have different scopes for proceedings and offer different remedies, patent disputes are often fought on both fronts, creating complex litigation scenarios.
Hoang, Eklem, and Houghton will provide a brief overview of proceedings at the ITC and the PTAB, discuss practice points, and dive into current events related to litigating patents in both forums.
