    2021 Annual Patent Litigation Webinar Series: The requirement for sufficiency: how much is enough to enable claims to a range of products? Recent guidance from the UK Supreme Court in Regeneron v Kymab

    Earn up to 1.0 Professional CLE for NJ/NY/PA

    The European Patent Convention requires that patents must be sufficient, so that the skilled person is able to work the claimed invention (which must, therefore, be enabled). In Regeneron v Kymab the UK Supreme Court considered patents for transgenic mice and reviewed European and UK case law on sufficiency. In particular, it considered precisely what has to be enabled and whether the requirement changes according to the importance of the invention. The UK Patents Court has given guidance on the general application of Regeneron in its first decision of 2021, Illumina v MGI. These decisions give rise to a number of practical considerations to take into account when drafting applications to be filed in the UK and Europe.

    2021 Annual Patent Litigation Webinar Series: Has Assignor Estoppel outlived its Usefulness?

    Earn up to 1.0 Professional CLE for NJ/NY/PA

    The Supreme Court granted certiorari in the case of Minerva Surgical, Inc. v. Hologic Inc., No. 20-440, to address the question “whether a defendant in a patent infringement action who assigned the patent, or is in privity with an assignor of the patent, may have a defense of invalidity heard on the merits.” This webinar session will address the facts and issues in the case, including the arguments made by the parties and various amici and the competing policies underlying the establishment of assignor estoppel and challenging the presumptive validity of patents. It also will explore the potential impact of this case on employee mobility and the value of patents in transactions.
