Upcoming Webinar: Filing in the Fast Lane – Leveraging the Patent Prosecution Highway to Get You from “A” to “B” Quicker (and Cheaper!)
William Reid, Partner at Dilworth IP will be presenting a free webinar entitled Filing in the Fast Lane – Leveraging the Patent Prosecution Highway to Get You from “A” to “B” Quicker (and Cheaper!) on Wednesday, September 24th from 1pm – 2pm EDT.
About the Presentation
While there are certainly rules of the road that must be followed, generally speaking, the current version of the Patent Prosecution Highway (PPH) can be a cost-effective and user-friendly means for in-house counsel and small business owners to get their patents granted in multiple international jurisdictions. It hasn’t always been so in the past, and there are a few key requirements that must be met, so knowing when the highway is an option and when it’s not the best route is critical. This webinar will focus on the improvements made to the PPH through the more recent IP5 and GBBH agreements, providing a streamlined, filing framework which could potentially save patent owners tens-of-thousands of dollars in international prosecution costs per application. With several examples and some recent statistics, this introduction to the PPH will be time well spent for in-house patent counsel concerned about departmental budgets, small business owners hoping to protect their patents internationally, and outside counsel seeking ways to better advise their clients.
