I recently moderated a roundtable discussion by three top patent lawyers to assess the significance and impact of the Aug. 20 en banc decision of the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals, In re Seagate Technology. The transcript of that roundtable is now available via IMS ExpertServices, which sponsored the event. The three panelists were:
- Alison M. Tucher, a partner in the San Francisco office of Morrison & Foerster and author of the amicus brief filed in Seagate on behalf of Echostar Communications and BEA Systems.
- Peter A. Sullivan, a partner in the New York office of Hughes Hubbard & Reed and author of the amicus brief filed in Seagate on behalf of the Association of the Bar of the City of New York.
- William F. Heinze, patent procurement counsel for GE Energy in Atlanta and author of the popular blog I/P Updates.
