    4:30 PM We’ve Been Wrong for 30 Years? TC Heartland and its Implications for Patent Law and Practice
    In May 2017, the Supreme Court decided the landmark case of TC Heartland LLC v. Kraft Foods Group Brands LLC. The TC Heartland decision overruled a 26-year-old precedent of the Federal Circuit and ended an era during which, by 2015, more than 40% of all patent infringement suits were being brought in a single judicial district (E.D. Tex.) to much public and scholarly outcry. In the aftermath of TC Heartland these circumstances gave rise to the question: just what had patent venue law actually been between 1990 and 2017?
    Join us for an in-depth discussion of TC Heartland and its implications for patent law and practice.
