    Event Synopsis:
    In any America Invents Act (AIA) trial proceeding, the Patent Trial & Appeal Board (PTAB) has been consistent in holding that assignor estoppel is subject to abrogation by the AIA statutes. Affirming this stand, the Federal Circuit held in Arista Networks, Inc. v. Cisco Systems, Inc., that assignor estoppel is not applicable in inter partes review (IPR) proceedings. However, other equitable defenses, such as judicial estoppel, can be considered and applied by PTAB so long as they do not contradict with AIA statutes.

    In a LIVE Webcast, a panel of key thought leaders and practitioners assembled by The Knowledge Group will offer an in-depth discussion of the fundamentals as well as updates on how PTAB treats equitable defenses. Speakers will identify significant risk issues and challenges relating this topic and provide best practices in leveraging equitable defenses before PTAB.
    Key topics include:
    • Equitable Defenses at PTAB – Recent Judicial Trends
    • Notable Cases
    • Risk Issues and Challenges
    • Best Practices
    • What Lies Ahead
