Patent Highlights 2014: Update on Patents in Life Sciences
Madrid (10 marzo), Barcelona (11 de marzo)
Organizado por la Oficina Española de Patentes y Marcas (OEPM) y el Centro de Patentes de la Universidad de Barcelona
"One focus will be on the patentability of life science inventions before the European Patent Office and some national patent courts, with special emphasis on therapeutic indications, reach-through claims and antibody inventions. In the field of pharmaceuticals, some cases of follow-up patents will be presented, as well as the most recent decisions on the Bolar and the research exemptions. Other subjects of interest will be the many recent decisions issued by the Court of Justice of the European Union with regard to supplementary protection certificates and the questions referred by national patent courts regarding the grant of such certificates. Product protection provided by process inventions will also be discussed. Finally, an update will be provided on EPO case law about some procedural aspects, such as priority, divisionals, and late-filed requests, evidence and arguments"
