Presenter: Laurence Gainey, PhD, HGF Intellectual Property Specialists
Date: May 24th 2018
This webinar will be a short, basic introduction to the process of patenting as it applies to biotherapeutics, including some territorial differences. It will cover the core requirements for a patent and the processes for obtaining patent protection, including the use of the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) as a springboard to securing patents in different jurisdictions.
The webinar will also explain the meaning of commonly used terms in patenting law such as inventive step, enablement/sufficiency, capable of industrial application, prior disclosure, public domain, priority date and provisional application. It will clarify what exemplification is and how much is necessary.
The presentation will be followed by a Q&A session where you can ask Dr. Gainey your questions during the broadcast.
