On January 14, 2020, Directors Ryan C. Richardson and Michael D. Specht presented a live webinar where they discussed the latest thinking on best practices for patenting standardized technologies. Their presentation, “Patenting Standardized Technologies: Scope of Claims, Disclosure and Essentiality Considerations,” provided guidance on the key considerations and implications of patenting standardized technologies, including:

  • What factors should patent owners and counsel consider when determining whether to declare a patent or application essential to a standard?
  • What is the potential impact of patenting standardized technologies on the enforcement of those patents?
  • How can practitioners draft and prosecute patent applications and claims to minimize the threat of a challenge to essentiality?
