Transcripts  Transcripts    

Recorded on: Jul. 23, 2013

JOHN WHITE: Now I get to introduce Rebecca and the next topic. But I told you, Ben brings passion to 102(g), and for that reason alone it's a shame that it's gone. Because it's such a fun topic. Our next topic is 103, as seen through the lens of district court, and importantly, CAFC decisions. And the reason we look at 103 from all angles, and indeed all of prior art from all angles, is it matters. The patent office takes one view and the CAFC helps ...

Transcripts  Transcripts    

Recorded on: Apr. 24, 2013

Recorded on: Jul. 10, 2013

KATHERINE C. SPELMAN: We begin with what I think is the two best presenters on the topic of basic principles of copyright law.

Even if you are a copyright expert, they will run you over the cavalettis, making you think again ...
