Download the brochure The fifth annual MIP US Patent Forum returned to Washington D.C on Thursday March 17 2016. In light of the recent draconian environment in the US, this forum took an in-depth analysis of post-grant proceedings before USPTO’s PTAB and examined strategies to make patents more secure, exploring levels of proof and understanding how claims are construed.From understanding the proposed federal law of trade secret protection, to litigation trends, design protection and global IP developments, the MIP US Patent Forum was a learning opportunity for IP leaders to help them finalise their strategies ahead of the proposed reforms to stay one step ahead of their competitors.The programme addressed the major issues at hand and encouraged the highest level debate on all the pertinent topics and technical matters from the varied perspectives of a wide range of stakeholders. In addition to this, MIP brought to the agenda its global experience so as to offer multinational corporations cutting-edge guidance on handling IP portfolios in a globalised world. The MIP US Patent Forum brought together world leaders in corporations, industry associations, and international leading experts to discuss and impart valuable knowledge.
