patent attorneys today should not draft
00:08
and prosecute patent applications the
00:10
same way they did 10 years ago
00:12
and the reason is that there has been a
00:14
fundamental paradigm shift in the way
00:16
accused defend
00:18
infringers defend against patent
00:20
infringement accusations
00:22
in the past
00:23
the strategy primarily was let’s go for
00:26
a narrow claim construction and get a
00:28
summary judgment of non-infringement
00:30
but the aia has changed all of that
00:33
and in the past
00:35
the best practices were developed to
00:38
counter that
00:40
strategy
00:41
now with aia trials you need prosecution
00:44
practices that are designed to counter

00:52
advocate and it may sound controversial
00:55
if your mind is still in the mindset of
00:58
the old days in fact it may sound a bit
01:01
heretical but we believe that that is
01:04
the best approach for modern times
01:07
and has been for the last 10 years
