The new Second Edition of Patent Litigation enhances your ability to prevail at trial while helping you cut the costs and complexity of litigation.
Many of America’s leading patent litigators guide you through all the litigation stages, helping you to understand various infringement actions and their respective burdens of proof; conduct comprehensive pre-suit investigations that streamline your cases; develop potent case themes; assemble strong litigation teams; get an early edge over opponents during discovery; reduce expenses by developing smart litigation budgets; maximize the persuasive impact of documents, exhibits, and lay and expert witnesses; and fortify your case while controlling costs by making savvy use of computers, jury consultants, and litigation support vendors.
Extensively revised and updated to reflect the impact of the America Invents Act of 2011, the new edition highlights AIA provisions regarding the first inventor-to-file system, prior art, swearing back, the defense of prior commercial use by the accused infringer, the on-sale and public use bars, tax strategy patents, best mode, false marking, joinder of defendants, obtaining
opinions of counsel, and more.
In addition, a new chapter is devoted to challenges to patent validity in the Patent and Trademark Office under the AIA, including the new inter partes review, post-grant review, derivation proceedings (and the elimination of interferences), supplemental examinations, and more. Beyond its treatment of the AIA, the new edition adds new discussion of joint infringement, spoliation, waiver of the attorney-client privilege, the use of mock trials and focus groups, and the use of summaries of evidence, among many other topics.
Updated at least once a year, Patent Litigation is an indispensable practical resource for every patent litigator.
