The Knowledge Group Scheduled a Live Webcast on Managing Patent Infringement Cases After the Duncan Parking Technologies Decision: Best Practices and Strategies

Event Synopsis:

In its 2019 Duncan Parking Techs., Inc. v. IPS Group, Inc. ruling, the Federal Circuit (the Court) overturned the Patent Trial and Appeal Board’s (PTAB’s) decision which held that ‘310 patent claims were not unpatentable as anticipated under 35 U.S.C. § 102(e). Refusing to apply the doctrine of equivalents, the Court also ruled that Duncan’s alleged single-space parking meter infringement did not function in the same way as IPS’ claimed invention. It further affirmed the summary judgment of noninfringement granted by the district court.

Thus, companies and their counsel need to understand how this case impacts current cases and the general patent infringement landscape in order to devise up-to-date and effective litigation techniques.

Join Aaron Pereira and Philip Hirschhorn, patent attorneys from Panitch Schwarze Belisario & Nadel LLP, as they provide an in-depth discussion of the Duncan case and its implications on patent infringement case management. Speakers will also provide practical tips and litigation tactics in bringing out the best in these lawsuits in a rapidly evolving legal climate.
