The Supreme Court in TC Heartland v. Kraft Foods Group Brands has overturned a federal circuit law that permits patent litigation venue to be found wherever a defendant was subject to personal jurisdiction. The decision is changing the patent litigation landscape by significantly limiting the proper venue where patent infringement lawsuits can be brought. In effect, patent owners previously could bring patent infringement actions against domestic companies in almost any forum across the country, but that is no longer true under the Supreme Court’s narrower interpretation of the patent venue statute. Forum shopping in popular districts is expected to be dramatically restricted.

As courts implement the TC Heartland decision to existing and pending cases, it is also leaving both legal and practical questions. Join a panel of key thought leaders and patent counsel assembled by The Knowledge Group as they bring the audience to a road beyond the basics of bringing or defending against patent lawsuits as they bring an in-depth analysis of the TC Heartland ruling’s impact on the patent litigation landscape. Speakers will also provide the audience with practical strategies in bringing out the best in these lawsuits in a rapidly evolving legal climate.

Key topics include:

• TC Heartland Decision: An Overview
• TC Heartland’s Implications
• Recent Patent Litigation Trends
• Legal and Practical Uncertainties
• Practical Litigation Strategies
