A “By Popular Demand” Sequel:

Due to the overwhelming response to our recent webcast analyzing the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision, MedImmune v. Genentech, West LegalworksTM brings you this 90-minute sequel, Rethinking Patent License Agreements in the Wake of MedImmune v. Genentech. This webcast picks up where the prequel left off. Our speakers will explore must-have provisions of patent license agreements post-MedImmune and offer licensees and licensors practical strategies for protecting their interests.

On January 9, 2007, the U.S. Supreme Court handed down an 8-1 decision that could not only spur a flurry of patent litigation but will also force patent lawyers to rethink how they draft patent license agreements going forward. In MedImmune v. Genentech, the Court held that a patent licensee is not required to breach or terminate a license agreement as a prerequisite for filing an action to challenge the validity, enforceability or scope of a licensed patent. In short, a patent licensee can now file a patent challenge while continuing to maintain the benefit of the license.

The expert panel will take you through the practical impact of MedImmune on existing and future patent license agreements. The speakers will tackle such compelling issues as:

  • Will MedImmune affect your existing license agreements and if so, to what extent?
  • What do licensees and licensors need to knwo for future negotiations and agreements?
  • What license provisions are a must after MedImmune?
  • How should you draft your license agreements in the future?
  • How can licensees and licensors best protect their interests in light of this decision?
  • How will MedImmune affect the ability of generic drug manufacturers to seek declaratory judgments?
  • What questions has the Supreme Court left unanswered?
