The value of patent term adjustments and extensions is considerable for companies looking to protect a successful product.
Different prosecution strategies can positively, or negatively, affect the term of a patent. This fact, combined with court decisions for governing extensions have made it critical for patent owners to devise and implement a strategic patent term policy.
Please join us for a discussion into the following issues affecting patent terms:
- How long does my patent last? Have the court decisions lengthened or shortened the term of my patents?
- What are the strategic and economic values of extending a patent?
- How long do I have to wait until my competitors patent expires?
- Can routine activities such as maintenance fees play a part in my strategy?
