Design patents are an often overlooked option for protecting a product offering. Design patents have been increasing in popularity in the fields of consumer electronic devices and user interfaces, particularly as utility patent protection in those fields has come under increasing scrutiny. During this webinar, we will discuss the requirements for design patent protections; some factors that have led to their recent popularity in the software world; the interplay between design patent protection, utility patent protection, and trademark protection; as well as the standard for enforcement of design patents in the United States.
DURING THE DIALOGUE, YOU WILL HEAR FROM:
- Jennifer Spaith, Partner, Seattle, Patent Department
- Gina Cornelio, Associate, Denver, Patent Department
