On Monday, September 27, 2010 from 2:00 p.m. to 3:15 p.m. Professor Joshua Sarnoff will participate in an LES workshop titled "The Effect of Healthcare Reform and Biosimilar Legislation on Licensing."
In addition, Professor Sarnoff will participate in a TeleBriefing conference on August 12, to discuss the practical implications of the Bilski decision on government and private practice.
The Supreme Court's decision in Bilski v. Kappos, issued on June 28, 2010, left many unresolved questions to be decided by the lower courts and the Patent and Trademark Office. The answers to these questions may not reveal themselves for some time, but there are some early indications as to how Bilski has affected the landscape of patent eligible subject matter.In this one-hour TeleBriefing, a distinguished panel of experts -- including two attorneys and Professor Sarnoff -- will address the Bilski decision and its immediate aftermath. Panelists will discuss early indicators of how courts and the patent office are interpreting the decision, as well as the impacts of the decision on U.S. patent practice.
