LES Annual Licensing Update Seminar and Reception

11 February 2016 13:30 to 17:30

 

Registration is opening soon for the LES Annual Licensing Update seminar taking place on Thursday 11th February 2016 from 13.30 until 17.30.  This will be followed by a drinks reception within the venue.

Topics for discussion will include:

  • Imporant contract interpretation issues from an English and US perspective

This session will take a fresh look at a number of common phrases and constructs used in licensing and other commercial contracts.  We will review topics of interest in the field of contract law which have come before the courts in the last 12 months or so and which are relevant to everyone practising in licensing and commercial contracts. We are also very fortunate to have a speaker who will offer insight and contrast with the position under US law.

Speakers: Laura Anderson, Bristows LLP and Gina Bicknell, Freshfields LLP

  • Post patent term royalties and how to deal with them in licensing transactions

This topic will focus on the US Spiderman case and its revisit of the Brulotte rule and discuss methods to address the problems presented by it. The position will be contrasted with the position under EU law.

(Speaker to be confirmed)

  • Patent Law and Procedure update

In this session we will run through the latest news and views on the UPC.  We will also consider key patent law developments and other material changes in substantive law or procedure which patent practitioners need to know including a review of the new Shorter Trial procedure in the High Court.

Speaker:  Rebecca Lawrence, REDD Solicitors
