TITLE
The Changes on How the Law Defines Patentable Subject Matter and What it Means for Licensing Professionals

DESCRIPTION
Since 2012, there have been three significant United States Supreme Court cases addressing the issues of what is patentable subject matter under §101 of the U.S. patent laws (i.e., Mayo v PrometheusMolecular Pathology v Myriad and Alice Corp. v CLS Bank). In turn, these cases have spawned a host of litigation in the lower courts. These cases dramatically affect broad technology areas, including life sciences, genetic testing, and information technology and software. They will also have dramatic consequences for research and development, as well as existing licensing agreements, and determine how future licensing agreements will be structured and negotiated. This presentation will highlight how the rules of the road have changed, and provide practical guidance for licensing negotiations and portfolio management.
