JUDGE LINN AND PTO DEPUTY DIRECTOR REA TO HIGHLIGHT UPCOMING PROGRAM
The University of Akron School of Law is sponsoring a Patent Law Experts Conference on Tuesday, February 5, 2013, at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Naples, Florida. The program will review the impact of the major changes in patent law set forth in the “America Invents Act” on attorneys and inventors, as well as the Supreme Court’s IP docket.
The program will feature presentations by Judge Richard Linn, of the Federal Circuit, and by the Honorable Teresa S. Rea, currently the deputy director of the PTO. Professor Tim Holbrook, of Emery Law, will lead the discussion on pending IP-related cases at the Supreme Court. Other noted IP professionals, from both private and corporate practice, including several from outside the U.S., also will participate.
The registration fee is $600, which includes a cocktail reception the evening of February 4.
