IQPC's 4th Patent Strategies

Loeb & Loeb LLP is a sponsor of IQPC's 4th Patent Strategies Conference. Loeb partner Edward Rice served as a member of the conference advisory board. Agenda highlights featuring Loeb partners Jordan Sigale and Mark Waddell are below.

From the IQPC Conference Site:
The practice of Patent Strategy in the Intellectual Property world is an often abstract endeavor filled with gray areas and overlapping borders. Recent rulings in the American patent arena combined with continuously evolving international patent statutes and governances make adopting an effective patent IP strategy a difficult but necessary feature in modern-day business. However, with the rising costs of litigation, the onslaught of patent trolls, and the general murkiness surrounding technological advances, the challenges for IP professionals have increased, and the entire concept of patentability becomes muddled. Uncertainties plague the patent world: What are the effects from the KSR-Teleflex’s ruling? How can you claim that your invention is not “obvious”? Do patents inhibit innovation? How should India and China be approached effectively?

Effectively answering these questions among others has become a central guideline to creating a successful IP approach for all industries. This is why IQPC has brought intellectual leaders from numerous sectors of American business to address the various issues that dominate the landscape of the contemporary patent worlds.
