    Lexology/Daniel Law Understanding the recent changes in Brazil’s patent environment  (Registration)
    The Brazilian Supreme Court recently handed down a landmark constitutional decision on Brazilian Patents. The case challenged the legal provision establishing a minimum period of patent protection of 10 years counted from the date of grant. By a 9-2 majority, the Court decided that the challenged provision violates the Constitution. Our expert panel looks forward to welcoming you to discuss the changed environment for patents in Brazil and what this means in practice.
    Speakers: Ricardo Nunes and Roberto Ribeiro (both partner, Daniel Law), Dr Shohta Ueno, Director – Dispute Resolution, Regeneron Pharmaceuticals Inc.; Corey Salsberg, VP and Global Head of IP Affairs, Novartis

    From presentation slides:
    Rule in force from 1996 to 2021:
    Section 40. A patent shall be in force for 20 years counted from the filing date
    Sole paragraph. The term of validity shall not be inferior to 10 years counted from the date of grant
    • In May Supreme Court decided to invalidate the 10-years-from-grant provision
    • Court decided that, as a general rule, this decision should not affect patents that have already granted in Brazil...
     ...EXCEPT FOR (i) pharma/medical patents, and for (ii) patents that were already being challenged in court, which would have their term of protection reduced from 10 years from grant to 20 years from the filing date

    JOINT CASE STUDY: Patent Scope Visualization - A Patent Mining and Visualization Platform for Antibody Claims
    Peter Henstock - Machine Learning & AI Technical Lead, Pfizer (Bio) , Khalid Aliweh and Parvinderjit Singh
    This session will address:
      -  Importance of patents for scientific and legal teams
      -  Overview on extracting key epitope data from antibody patents
      -  Novel visualization showing the claimed epitopes in context

    Note: OpenPSV (Patent Scope Visualization) has been collaborative [capstone] project between Harvard Extension School (Khalid Aliwen, Santiago Iraola, Alexander Park, Anna Romanova, Parvinderjit Singh, Trisha Singh (Harvard ES) and Pfizer (Raquel Alvarez ["client",J.D.,Ph.D., Assistant General Counsel], Roman Burdakov, Peter V Henstock). The code and a brief description for OpenPSV is available at ("The OpenPSV provides an all-inclusive automated analytical pipeline for epitope-based claims. The system automatically stores and processes uploaded patents [selected as a result of separate patent searches] using computer vision, text mining, and sequence alignment techniques. The claimed epitope sequences are aggregated in a visualization chart that is accessible to users.". "... OpenPSV extracts data and metadata from the patents, sequence listings, USPTO API [for sequences], API [patent info], Clustal Omega [multiple sequence alignment] package, integrates data processing, data analytics, and visualization tools..." ''The OpenPSV system is able to achieve above 90% accuracy in the extraction of key patent metadata using [Tesseract 4.0 Long Short Term Memory (LSTM) networks]....OpenPSV relies heavily on complex regular expressions to extract epitopes and sequence identifiers from within patent claims and descriptions."...). Several screenshots from live OpenPSV demo have been attached (see below). 

    1:00 -2:00 PM ET | 7:00 -8:00 PM CET
    SLW Digital Transformation Case Study: Due Diligence, Freedom to Operate Studies, Landscape Studies, Portfolio Curation, Portfolio Analytics, Landscape Analytics (Recording, 66 m presentation, 57 p.)  [FTO: video:13:35 -23:40; pp. 20-26]
    SLW has both invented and invested heavily in tools for performing many analytics, portfolio curation and due diligence tasks, including building its own data lake of worldwide patent and trademark data, and using that data for its own proprietary analytics systems. Join us while we discuss the capabilities of these tools and how they have digitally transformed many of the labor intensive tasks involved in these activities and in the process lowered the cost of and increased access to many strategic IP services.
