Sutherland Partner Peter G. Pappas is speaking on a Webinar entitled "Patents and the Written Description Requirement: Meeting Section 112 Disclosure Obligations After Ariad v. Lilly" on June 10, 2010, from 1:00–2:30 p.m. (ET). Pete's presentation will provide guidance to patentees, patent challengers, and counsel for dealing with the written description requirement of 35 U.S.C. §112, first paragraph, and discuss the implications of the Federal Circuit's opinion in Ariad v. Lilly for compliance and patent challenges.
The Webinar will review the following questions: What are the implications of Ariad for the predictable and non-predictable arts?; how will Ariad impact patent prosecution?; and what steps can patentees and counsel take to meet the written description requirement and withstand invalidity challenges based on the written description?
