Managing Intellectual Property hosted the European Patent Reform Forum to San Jose on December 10 and New York on December 12.

With the onset of the European Patent Reform and Unitary Patent Court (UPC) fast
approaching, it was time to look at how this will impact your work and start
making necessary adjustments to your strategy. The Forum was tailored US IP expert, and discussed the unified patent court and the unified patent in detail. It also took an in-depth look at the most pressing issues for US companies. Delegates were able to:

  • Learn how to win opposition proceedings without discovery
  • Discuss split proceedings and bifurcation
  • Analyse litigation planning and forum shopping in the European Unified Patent Court
  • Discover alternative dispute resolution options in Europe
  • Debate with your peers on suitable global litigation strategies

By discussing the next steps and most recent updates of the European Patent
Reform, delegates gained an invaluable analysis of the details and specifics of
the UPC, the unified patent and litigation strategies under the new court.
Delegates now are in a position to create a strong IP strategy for Europe by taking advantage of this learning opportunity and gaining a head-start on your competitors.

Deelgates benefited from high level debate on all of the pertinent topics and technical matters from the varied perspectives of corporations, service providers, the sciences and, of course, leading legal experts. In addition to this, Managing Intellectual Property brought to the agenda its global expertise to offer cutting-edge guidance on handling IP portfolios under the new UPC.

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.
