In the webinar, we plan to explore the impact of the Western District of Texas on the patent landscape, particularly how it has affected the ability to seek post-grant review at the Patent Trial and Appeal Board. We will discuss the rise of the Western District of Texas as the go-to jurisdiction for NPEs, including the affect of the recent VLSI decision. In addition, we will discuss the effect of the Western District's aggressive trial-date scheduling and transfer practices on the PTAB in light of Fintiv.

Unified is a 200+ international membership organization that seeks to improve patent quality and deter unsubstantiated or invalid patent assertions in defined technology sectors (Zones) through its activities. Its actions are focused broadly in Zones with substantial assertions by Standards Essential Patents (SEP) holders and/or Non-Practicing Entities (NPEs). These actions may include analytics, prior art, invalidity contests, patentability analysis, administrative patent review (PTAB), amicus briefs, economic surveys, and essentiality studies. Unified works independently of its members to achieve its deterrence goals.
