Top Patent Law Stories of 2012 (Live Webinar)

For the past five years, the Patent Docs weblog has presented an annual, end-of-the-year review of the top stories in patent law. In this presentation, Patent Docs co-authors Donald Zuhn and Kevin Noonan will take a look back at the top patent stories of 2012, many of which will likely impact patent applicants and practitioners in the coming year. Patent stories expected to make the list this year include:

  • Continued implementation of the Leahy-Smith America Invents Act

  • Supreme Court’s grant of certiorari in Association for Molecular Pathology v. Myriad Genetics, Inc.; Bowman v. Monsanto Co.; and Federal Trade Commission v. Watson Pharmaceuticals, Inc.

  • Supreme Court’s decision in Mayo Collaborative Services v. Prometheus Laboratories, Inc.

Presenters: MBHB Partners Kevin Noonan, Ph.D. and Donald Zuhn, Ph.D.
