MIP European Patent Forum USA 2017

December 6, Fairmont San Jose
December 8, Convene Times Square, New York


Overview


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 provided updates for US patent owners on the latest progress on ratification and implementation. It also gave 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 were discussed in detail, in addition to the application of landmark decisions in the life sciences sector. The forum identified 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 brought together industry leading expert in-house counsel with private practitioners, corporate executives and academics to talk through the most pertinent topics lawyers face today.
