Join your PLL colleagues as Ken White talks about the what, why and how of declarations?  

In Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) proceedings and in patent litigation, lawyers need to prove that prior art was available to the public before the application date of the patent in question. Legal information professionals supporting work in this area need to provide the proof. If you've ever been asked to get a date-stamped copy of an article or book, or a declaration about the date on which an item was made available to the public, this session is for you. Learn why declarations are important and how lawyers use them. Explore why library date stamps are no longer sufficient on their own, as well as how to get a declaration and who can provide them. The discussion will also include how to overcome some of the barriers to proving the date of availability.
