Design Patents Post-LKQ v. GM: Rob Katz Presents in Strafford Webinar

Shareholder Rob Katz will participate in a panel discussion guiding patent counsel on the Federal Circuit’s recent decision in LKQ Corp. v. GM Global Technology Operations L.L.C during a Strafford CLE webinar on Wednesday, July 10 from 1 – 2:30 pm EDT.

The webinar, “Design Patents Post-LKQ v. GM: Navigating New Obviousness Test for Design Patents,” will examine the Federal Circuit’s decision and its implications for design patents. The panel will discuss the new test for obviousness and the hurdles it will present for design patents and offer guidance addressing obviousness issues in design patents.

The panel will review these and other key questions:

  • How will the Federal Circuit’s decision and USPTO guidance change obviousness for design patents?
  • What lessons can design patent counsel learn from the application of the obviousness test in utility patents?
  • What are the steps that design patent applicants can take to stand up to obviousness rejections?
