On 30 November 2018 Craig Smith will present the below Webinar:
Parameteritis (or parametritis) – is there such a condition affecting patent claims?
In 2004 Bennett J imported this term into the Australian patent lexicon in her Honour’s decision in Williams Advanced Materials Inc v Target Technology Co LLC. This has led to a spate of references in decisions over the last two years from the Federal Court and the Patent Office.
This talk will look at the types of claims that attract the label of parameteritis, whether any different legal issues arise for such claims, and what potential ‘cures’ exist for someone seeking to invalidate such claims.
