ACI's Advanced Summit on Global Patenting Strategy & Practice

At American Conference Institute’s Advanced Summit on Global Patenting Strategy & Practice experienced international patent counsel will advise you on how to incorporate multiple international patent developments, including the AIA, the EU Unitary Patent system, patent harmonization efforts and changes in emerging markets IP rules to create an overall patent strategy designed to most effectively protect the company’s most important asset – its intellectual property.  In just the first session of the conference, find out what you need to know about the global IP environment to maximize the worldwide value of the product including:
  • Ensuring that you can remain flexible when prosecuting patents so that you can account for changes in your product’s commercial embodiment, as well as account for design arounds by competitors.
  • Determine which countries provide effective patent protection for your product.
  • The average time and cost of prosecution in jurisdictions.
  • Determining whether there are effective national enforcement mechanisms to make patents worthwhile in that market.
  • Identifying what products require that patenting entities obtain a Foreign Filing License.
  • Preparing for and knowing when you need to retain local firms in different jurisdictions.
