Obviousness-type double patenting (“ODP”) is a judicially created doctrine that seeks to prevent patent owners from extending patent protection beyond the statutorily afforded term. This webinar will explore the evolving provenance of obviousness-type double patenting in addressing the following topics:

  • Traditional confines of the doctrine
  • Federal Circuit expansion in Sun Pharma and Gilead
  • Retrenchment in Breckenridge Pharma and Ezra Ventures
  • Future prospects

MBHB partners Kevin Noonan, Ph.D. and Sarah Fendrick, Ph.D.
