I’m on my way to the BIO IP Counsels Committee Conference.  The 2010 Fall IPCC Conference, in Boston, MA, is scheduled for October 18-20, 2010.  It is an opportunity for BIO members and other industry IP professionals to come together to hear, discuss and learn about current and projected topics related to biotech IP.

Program Highlights

Hear from fellow in-house colleagues, outside counsel, and PTO representatives about:

  • Evolving patent-eligibility standards for genes, biomarkers, diagnostics, and cell-based therapies;
  • Valuation of IP when selling, licensing, or acquiring biotech patent rights;
  • Present and impending changes to the way you practice before the PTO;
  • How to defend your patent in an inter partes reexam;
  • Whether inequitable conduct reform is close or elusive;
  • Inducement, divided infringement, “abstract idea” exceptions, and other things that go “bump” in the dark if you own biotech method patents;
  • Tales from the edge and beyond: accounts of biotech investment in emerging market countries.
  • Join us for private dinner reception at the New England Aquarium where attendees will get to explore a four-story ocean water tank filled with exotic fish and animals in their natural habitat.
