McDermott is committed to providing insightful commentary on intellectual property (IP) developments from around the world to our Japanese clients. In light of that effort, we are pleased to announce that our free webinar series, McDermott IP Focus, will continue in 2024.
During these sessions, we will explore global developments in IP, including disputes, transactions, and procurement, with a significant focus on what Japanese companies need to know during this ever-changing business landscape.
The first session will take place on February 21, 2024, and focus on the use and weaponization of prosecution laches. Discussion topics will include:
- The recent surge in using prosecution laches as a defensive weapon
- New US case law addressing prosecution laches
- Using prosecution laches against patentees
- Best practices for defending against prosecution laches
