Topic:

Trial Strategies And Techniques Learned From Actual IP Cases

Outline of Talk:

The presentation will highlight a recently completed trial involving two corporations battling over significant intellectual property.

The case is unusual in that it involves two well-known corporations as opposed to an individual and a corporation, both of whom feel strongly about their patent claims. The case took place over several years � culminating in a lengthy trial in federal court. The presentation is insightful and will address the following as well as other practical implications:

  1. How does the reputation of the companies impact perceptions of the merits of the case?
  2. What types of jurors are helpful to each party?
  3. What evidence do jurors most want to see?
  4. What makes an effective presentation in a 21st century courtroom?
  5. What does it take to produce and direct a complex, 21st century patent case?
  6. What does it mean to own software, and what proves infringement?
