Welcome to Skilled in the Art. I’m Law.com IP reporter Scott Graham.

I felt like I learned more about IP trial strategy in one hour Wednesday from Alan Albright, Tom Melsheimer, Matt Powers and Rachel York Colangelo than I did during the rest of 2020. Below are some of highlights from an entertaining webinar. Plus, after a terse start, PTO Director Andrei Iancu and Sen. Mazie Hirono are very much on the same page when it comes to diversifying the ranks of inventors (and patent lawyers). And we can look ahead to the first virtual jury trial in a patent infringement case next month.
