Patent Filing Strategies For Licensing Early Stage Technologies

For this week's Tuesday Licensing Forum @2pm we will have a special presentation from the McBee Moore & Vanik IP law firm, a National Institutes of Health (NIH) contract law firm based in Frederick, MD and McLean, VA.

Federal laboratories seek patent protection for their discoveries in order to support commercial development by licensees so selection of an appropriate patent filing strategy to provide for this is very important. While there are many patent filing and prosecution options available to laboratories, how do you decide which ones are actually appropriate for early stage technologies? This seminar will provide an overview of the various options available and provide guidance on how to select the best option useful in the protection and licensing of your lab's early stage technologies.
