About this Event
Join us on Tuesday, February 6th at noon ET for a virtual panel discussion on the obviousness standard in design patent law, led by Suffolk University Law School Professor and co-Director of the Suffolk Law IP Center, Professor Sarah Burstein.
In February, the Federal Circuit will hear its first en banc case in five years and its third design patent en banc case ever. In LKQ v. GM, LKQ is asking the Federal Circuit to reevaluate the current test for determining whether a design patent is obvious. If LKQ’s argument is successful, the design patent landscape could dramatically change.
Hear from design patent law experts the day after the oral arguments. Topics to be discussed include analysis of the oral arguments, commentary on the obviousness standard in design patents, and insights on how the Court might rule in its en banc decision.
Confirmed speakers include:
This event is free and open to Suffolk Law School students, faculty, and the general IP community.
