Timo Minssen - Foredragsholder

Following the EU Commission’s pharmaceutical sector report, competition law has become increasingly important to the pharma sector. One of the most debated issues is the practice of patent settlements (a.k.a. “pay for delay” or “reverse payments”), which is reflected by the most recent 3rd Commission report on patents settlements (July 25th, 2012). Even in the US there have been seminal developments on this issue, involving fiercely discussed policy statements by the US president and the FTC, as well as pending litigation at the US Supreme Court. This presentation elaborates on this important topic and present the very latest developments in the US.

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.
