  • (1888PressRelease) June 12, 2018 - Event Synopsis:
    The Federal Circuit's 2017 decision in TC Heartland has created a paradigm shift on how litigants in patent cases choose a venue. For decades, patent holders were allowed to sue for infringement in almost any federal district court wherever personal jurisdiction could be established, allowing non-practicing entities (NPEs) to choose venues that would create heavy pressure on defendants to settle and avoid costly litigation. However, with the recent court decision, patent litigation cases have been limited to districts in states where the defendant is incorporated or has a regular and established place of business only.

    The sudden shift in the patent venue landscape may create new patent challenges, and may give rise to more complicated risks and pitfalls. To avoid such risks, patent holders and their counsel should keep themselves abreast of the recent trends and developments surrounding this area.

    In this LIVE Webcast a panel of thought leaders and professionals brought together by The Knowledge Group will provide the audience with an in-depth analysis of the recent updates and trends in the patent venue landscape after the TC Heartland decision. Speakers will also identify key issues and trends involving this significant topic.

    - The TC Heartland Decision
