The Comprehensive Guide to
For Life Sciences Companies
Tuesday, January 31 to Wednesday, February 01, 2012
Flatotel, New York, NY
With the historic passing of The America Invents Act, H.R. 1249, the United States is now facing the most significant patent reform in more than 60 years. Patent reform is now a reality. The impact of such sweeping changes to the US patent system will be exceptionally significant for life sciences companies whose life blood is dependent on the value of their intellectual property and patents.
With countless complicated nuances throughout the statute and the unknown implications of these provisions looming, patent practitioners have been left with a multitude of questions regarding the overwhelming potential ramifications of the AIA on their patent practices. One thing is clear – with so much at stake for life sciences companies, you must plan now for the changes both in effect already and on the horizon in order to protect and defend invaluable intellectual property.
Based on extensive research with industry experts, ACI has developed The Comprehensive Guide to PATENT REFORM For Life Sciences Companies as an advanced strategic meeting bringing together the industry thought leaders, including Teresa Stanek Rea and Janet Gongola from the USPTO and Former Commissioner for Patents, Robert L. Stoll, to analyze the practical impact of the complicated new law on your patent strategies. The expert faculty will discuss answers to the most pressing questions facing patent practitioners resulting from the AIA including:
• What does “first to file” actually mean under the AIA
requirements? Which system can you or should file under – the
current first to invent or the new first to file
(or both)? And how
do you avoid first-to-file bubble filings before 3/15/2013?
Do not miss this opportunity to join your colleagues in an advanced think-tank discussion regarding the practical impact of patent reform on the life sciences industries. As this event is sure to sell out, reserve your place today to ensure you are a part of the discussion and have the information that you need to navigate this radically different legal landscape by calling 888-224-2480, faxing your registration form to 877-927-1563 or registering on-line at www.americanconference.com/patentreform.
