Join Biocom and Nixon Peabody as we host a panel on “Business Strategies for Foreign Patent Protection.” Join us for a discussion to address the question “Is it worth it?” when considering whether and how to pursue foreign patent protection. The panelists will contrast the opportunities, processes and challenges in securing patent protection on life sciences inventions in the U.S. and Europe, to illustrate the ways in which patent systems differ in key markets and to help with strategic patenting decisions. They will also discuss the differing nature of patent enforcement in these regions and international tax structures available for intellectual property, which also have important implications for a global patent strategy.
