Patent reform - Where, When, Why and How?
Major reforms of the patent system are taking place on both sides of the Atlantic. In Europe the Holy Grail of unification (a unified right with a unified court system) is within reach. In the US a major overhaul of the patent system is being carried out through both legislative reform and groundbreaking court decisions. At the same time, developments in the legal areas surrounding patent law (such as competition law) and within patent law itself silently reform the way patents can be enforced and what can be protected. This conference brings together Danish and international experts to analyse, describe, and discuss these important developments.
