    Event Synopsis:
    In the later part of 2017, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit has held that the TC Heartland v. Kraft Foods decision of the Supreme Court changed the patent venue landscape. An alleged infringer may now argue of improper venue “in a judicial district where it is subject to a court’s personal jurisdiction but where it is not incorporated and has no regular and established place of business.” The venue decision is becoming much more complicated as a result of recent decisions.

    In determining patent venue, litigants should consider the chosen forum’s treatment of patent venue issue and its position on burden.

    Join a panel of key thought leaders and litigants assembled by The Knowledge Group as they bring the audience to a road beyond the basics of bringing or defending against patent litigation and as they delve into an in-depth analysis of the current trends and recent court rulings involving determination of Patent Venue in light of the TC Heartland decision. Speakers will also provide the audience with practical strategies in bringing out the best in these lawsuits in a rapidly evolving legal climate.

    Key topics include:

    • TC Heartland v. Kraft Foods – A Change of Law
    • Impacts of TC Heartland to Patent Infringement Litigation
    • Identification of Correct Venue
    • Venue as to Foreign Defendants
    • Improper Venue Defense - Recent Trends and Developments
    • Productive Litigation Strategies
