Our Speaker for Tuesday April 14, 2015 - Sidharth Kapoor
"What do I need to do to get a Patent? Inside Perspective from a Patent Examiner"
Sid is a US Patent Attorney, currently working as a Patent Examiner at the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office. As a Patent Examiner, Sid has prosecuted over 200 patent applications; primarily in the medical device technological area, which includes variety of medical devices and methods, including, but not limited to: stent delivery systems for performing angioplasty procedures, laparpscopic instruments for performing a gastric bypass surgery or simply removing targeted tissue, embolic filters directed towards treating atherosclerosis, and various other medical devices such as brain stimulation electrical leads, cochlear implants, and heart valves.
In addition to working as Patent Examiner, Sid has also worked as a patent clerk to Honorable District Court Judge Sheridan, where he provided his technical expertise on patent infringement cases brought before the District Court of New Jersey. This gave Sid great perspective on how patents are interpreted when being litigated in court, and what are some common pitfalls that can be avoided during the patent preparation and prosecution phase in order stand invalidity challenges by a competitor, and have the patent infringed.
Sid’s educational background includes a bachelors and masters in science in Biomedical Engineering from New Jersey Institute of Technology; and a Juris Doctorate with a concentration in Intellectual Property from Seton Hall School of Law. Sid is admitted to practice before the State of New Jersey, State of Florida, and U.S. Patent & Trademark Office.
Immediately following the presentation, we will have an open Q & A session.
