If the online purchase button is not showing, then the on-demand program is not yet available. **** In 2011, Congress totally rewrote the Patent Act's definition of prior art. By replacing the traditional "first-to-invent" system with a "first-inventor-to-file" system, the concept of what was considered prior art was substantially changed. In doing so, Congress kept some familiar concepts like "on-sale" in the Act, but included a catchall qualifier of "otherwise available to the public". Conventional wisdom was that "on-sale" prior art would not include non-public information. This past term, a unanimous Supreme Court in Helsinn Healthcare SA v. Teva Pharmaceuticals USA, Inc., found otherwise, and affirmed a holding by the Federal Circuit that a confidential sale of an invention ready for patenting was still prior art -- even if

Ethics & Copyright Litigation: What the Practitioner Needs to Know

Program Number: 2911 Presenter: Raymond Dowd, Esq.

Ray Dowd, author of West’s acclaimed Copyright Litigation Handbook and a partner in Dunnington Bartholow & Miller LLP in New York City will take us through the ethical pitfalls facing legal practitioners tackling copyright litigation. Appropriate for inhouse counsel, and private practitioners both seasoned and novice. Professional responsibility issues arise early in copyright litigation. The disciplinary rules of each jurisdiction impose a duty of professional competence. The combination of Rule 11 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure requiring attorneys to investigate and warrant the viability of claims and defenses with the Copyright Act’s potential awards of attorneys fees as costs to the prevailing party, make the attorney litigating copyright claims a potential target throughout the litigation. In this age of sanctions being imposed on copyright trolls and overaggressive copyright enforcement, what are the ethical takeaways attorneys representing content owners and distributors? Is it a breach of ethics to send

From Murder To Museums: Abraham Lincoln, Adolf Hitler and The Hunt For Nazi Looted Art In America-Current Legal Controversies Over Nazi Art Looting

Program Number: 2857 Presenter: Raymond Dowd, Esq.

Museums today acknowledge that significant amounts of Nazi-looted art may have found its way into collections supported by U.S. taxpayers. The United States and its Allies fought World War II, promising, in victory, to undo the horrors of Nazism. At Nuremberg, Nazis were tried based on international law, which, in turn was based on the Lieber Code, Abraham Lincoln’s Executive Order 100 of April 23, 1863 which forbid taking the cultural property of the enemy. In 1998, in the wake of District Attorney Robert Morgenthau’s spectacular seizure of two paintings by the artist Egon Schiele at New York’s Museum of Modern Art, forty-four nations gathered in Washington D.C. at the Washington Conference on Nazi Confiscated Artwork to agree that in cases of artworks, the true owners should be determined, regardless of statutes of limitations and that, where possible, artworks should be returned to their true owners. As recently as
