    Event Synopsis:
    Obviousness-type double patenting (ODP) is a judicially created doctrine which aims to prevent patent owners from improperly extending patent rights, by prohibiting the issuance of second patent claims that are not “patentably distinct” from the first patent claims. With possible landmines at each turn, patent owners are advised to review their patent portfolios in light of recent developments, and to carefully understand ODP jurisprudence, challenges and considerations to avoid risks and pitfalls.

    In this LIVE Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders brought together by The Knowledge Group will help patent owners and practitioners understand the important aspects of this significant topic. They will provide an in-depth discussion of ODP trends and developments. Speakers will also offer insights on how to best protect against ODP issues.

    Key topics include:
    • ODP – Trends and Developments
    • Risks for Patent Owners
    • Challenges and Considerations
    • Recent Double Patenting Court Rulings
    • Best Practices to Protect Against ODP Issues
