1:00 – 2:00 PM ET 2021 LESI Annual Meeting IP Valuation in a Connected World: SEPs and the IoT (posted after the event)
Speakers: Sam Wiley, Connected Innovation Intelligence Evangelist, PatSnap, Dennis Duncan, Managing Director, Essentiality Check, Neil Zoltowski, Partner, StoneTurn Group; Matthias Schneider, Chief Licensing Officer, Audi AG)As technology ecosystems evolve to become increasingly connected and complex, the IP valuation models supporting the standards that make these relationships possible must also evolve. In this session, we will explain the most recent economic models and case law related to the Internet of Things (IoT) and Standard Essential Patents (SEPs). Our discussion will include the current debates related to the valuation of IoT and SEPs, such as "license for all" versus "license to all."

Goals: – Understand what acts constitute (and do not constitute) patent infringement. – Identify the relevant factors in negotiating a favorable patent licensing deal.Note: This is the third of 14 lectures of Patent Strategy for Entrepreneurs: Fall 2021 Webinar Series @ MIT. The webinars held every Tuesdays 7:30 PM until December 14, 2021. See description of the course, recording of the first two lectures at Sep. 21, 2021 PIUG PF post.

Lexology/CCPIT Patent & Trademark Law Office China’s brand-new patent linkage and patent term extension (Registration)Speakers: Fan Li, Director, CCPIT, and Juhua Luo, Deputy Director, CCPIT (China)China has introduced Patent Term Extension (PTE) and Patent Linkage in the latest amendment to the Patent Law effective as of June 1, 2021. The specific rules for implementing patent linkage and for patent linkage-related litigation were promulgated and came into force in early July. The China National Intellectual Property Administration (CNIPA) released draft amendments to the Patent Examination Guidelines on August 3, 2021, which -- provide details of PTE rules. During this webinar, we will discuss the following topics:
Implementation of patent linkage in China: mechanism, routes of enforcement, interplay between different procedures, chances, challenges and suggestions for practice.
Implementation of patent term extension: eligible patents, eligible drugs, other requirements, calculation of PTE duration, protection scope and more.12:00 PM – 1:15 PM ET | 6:00 - 7:15 PM CET
WIPR Insights Admissibility of post-filing data in different jurisdictions (Registration: add to calendar)
Speakers: Dr. Nabeela Rasheed (Amunix Pharmaceuticals), Daniel Beck (Wrays), Tony Proctor (Potter Clarkson LLP)The admissibility of post-filing data varies across jurisdictions, making its effectiveness subject to national patent office rules. Join our panel as they discuss these differences and the impact they have on the strategy of patent prosecution in different jurisdictions.
In Europe, post-filing evidence can be used to counteract inventive step objections at the EPO (T939/92 and T1329/04), and in limited circumstances to overcome a lack of sufficiency (T609/02)—how does this impact strategy for patent application and prosecution in Europe?
The USPTO allows submission of post-filing evidence that supports prophetic disclosure (Amgen v Hoechst Marion Roussel)—does this effectively allow earlier filing for the patent?
The BASF Corporation  APO 34 decision in Australia seems to confirm that post-filing data can establish sufficiency—how does this differ from the approaches taken in Europe and the US?
