Managing IP hosted the inaugural MIP Life Sciences Forum 2016 in New York on September 14.

Over the past year IP owners in the life sciences sector have been facing unique
opportunities and challenges when protecting their patents. Rapid developments in
the landscape of drug discovery, research and pending proposals for reform in
Congress means that your strategies to protect your IP may need rethinking.

As such, the Forum tracked legislative developments within the life sciences sector, examined the potential impact and forecasted one, five and 10-year horizon for changes. In addition, the Forum addressed:

  • Strategies for patent drafting post-Gilead and gain in-depth knowledge of double patenting
  • Patent prosecution trends and landmark cases including the Hatch-Waxman Act
  • The changing patent landscape in Europe and considerations as to whether to opt-in or opt-out
  • How to obtain an injunction and review the scope of liability
  • The key decisions and precedents at PTAB over the past year

Senior IP and general counsel from leading pharmaceutical and life sciences organisations shared their experiences of managing IP matters and engaged in lively debate on all the pertinent topics within life sciences from varied perspectives.

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.
