The Naples Roundtable identifies current patent law issues in need of clarification, also known as the “Phoenix List,” originally created by Chief Judge Howard Thomas Markey in 1982. Today, these issues focus our attention, foster our discussion, and inspire thought leaders to work toward making the US patent system an “engine of innovation.”
Partner Steve Auvil will participate in a discussion leader group that focuses on Phoenix Issue VI. “Is the patent litigation being abusively utilized today or have “Troll” actions been significantly curbed? Have IPRs, recent court decisions, changes in venue selection and the more frequent award of attorneys’ fees helped? What actions should be taken to improve the quality of the patents that are issued?”
