The MIP International Patent Forum is returned for its sixth year to the Hotel Pullman London St Pancras on March 9 & 10, 2016.

With large scale developments in global patent law coming into force, it is more
important than ever to understand and navigate legal developments across a
range of dynamic jurisdictions in order to build a robust patent portfolio. The MIP
International Patent Forum kept delegates one-step ahead on global legal developments including:

  • European patent reform;
  • Post-grant patent proceedings before USPTO's PTAB;
  • Patentable subject matter;
  • and in-depth analysis of second medical use patents in multiple jurisdictions.

From trade secrets as a means to protect your IP, to litigation strategies and licensing in technology, media and telecommunications, the forum provided strategies to deal with the uncertainties of patent protection, and highlighted opportunities and challenges in global markets including Turkey, India, Russia and Africa.

This year once again saw 300 registered delegates come together over two days to address the major patent issues at hand. Discussions encouraged high-level debate and participation on pertinent patent topics and technical matters from the varied perspectives of a wide range of stakeholders.
