A Fresh Look at Chemical and Pharmaceutical Selection Inventions: U.S. and European Perspectives

  • 12/20/2022
  • 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
  • Zoom


Registration is closed

This webinar intends to provide the background and jurisprudence on the patentability of chemical and pharmaceutical selection inventions. The panel will discuss topics such as novelty, obviousness (or inventive step), and sufficiency of disclosure as it relates to selection inventions and the prior art for which the invention is said to be generically disclosed. Several case examples will be provided and similarities and differences between the US and Europe will be discussed. The discussion will take into account the most recent developments in EPO practice and case law and will review the recent US Federal Circuit decision in Mylan v. Merck.
