The Unified Patent Court and Unitary Patent are closer than ever to becoming reality, but recent developments in Germany and the UK have raised new questions. The MIP European Patent Reform Forum USA will provide updates for US patent owners on the latest progress on ratification and implementation. It will also give practical advice for US companies who may wish to take advantage of the new system and those that want to opt-out their existing European patents, and address key questions US practitioners have about how the system will work in practice.

Recent EU decisions relating to FRAND and regulating SEP’s in Europe will be discussed in detail, in addition to the application of landmark decisions in the life sciences sector. The forum will identify the questions unanswered by essential developments in European patent law over the past year and draw comparisons between jurisdictional approaches to refine your strategies for the next 6-12 months.

In order to adequately address the legislative changes in Europe, the MIP European Patent Forum USA will bring together industry leading expert in-house counsel with private practitioners, corporate executives and academics to talk through the most pertinent topics lawyers face today.

Courts grapple with scope of patent protection

The Supreme Court’s decision in Actavis v Eli Lilly introduced a doctrine of equivalents and arguably also established a doctrine of prosecution history estoppel in the UK.
