Silicon Valley office attorneys Jim Batchelder and Gabrielle Higgins discussed the recent Federal Circuit Akamai/McKesson opinion on divided infringement and inducement at this CLE presentation. Additionally, they analyzed some of the early effects of the non-joinder provision of the America Invents Act. Notably, has the restriction on joinder of defendants resulted in an increase in transfers? Are plaintiffs (and courts) trying to preserve the status quo through the use of multi-district litigation? Finally, the speakers discussed the Inter Partes Review and the Post-Grant Review Process, which is set to launch on September 16.
