The Race for a Coronavirus Vaccine: The Intersection of Science and IP Policy

The term “coronavirus” and the disease COVID-19 have become ubiquitous in daily communications across the globe. While many initially asked why testing for the coronavirus that causes COVID-19 was slow to roll out, and why tests in many countries were inaccurate, one question no one seems to be asking is why the pursuit of a vaccine is going so slow. Indeed, by all reports from both the public and private sectors, the first viable vaccines are months, if not weeks away.

“All of what is being accomplished today is the result of years of innovation,” said USPTO Director Andrei Iancu in a recent interview with IPWatchdog.com. “It is important not to lose track of that.” Indeed, the fact that multiple companies are racing toward a vaccine in unprecedented time frames is precisely because of the vast amounts of research and development that have taken place in the years leading up to the current COVID-19 pandemic.

Amidst this backdrop, join Gene Quinn, patent attorney and leading commentator on patent law and innovation policy, on  TUESDAY, September 22, 2020, at 1 pm ET. Gene will host a wide-ranging conversation on the topic of COVID-19 and the race toward a coronavirus vaccine. In addition to discussing the science and FDA processes involved, we discuss intellectual property rights and more. Joining Gene will be immunization expert Dr. Jonathan Temte, a Professor at the Wisconsin School of Medicine who also serves as a member of the CDC’s Board of Scientific Counselors, Melissa Brand, Assistant General Counsel for Intellectual Property at the Biotechnology Innovation Organization, and Erika Lietzan, Associate Professor of Law at the University of Missouri School of Law.

The Future of Monetization

The patent policy landscape in the US has caused an uptick in interest in Europe and China in recent years. ith the marketplace in flux many continue to take a fresh look at foreign markets and foreign patent portfolios and foreign strategies. Indeed, the changing landscape in America continues to alter business models and monetization strategies for associated patents worldwide. This roundtable discussion will focus on what the future looks like, where it is most promising, and why.

Everyone Wants to Be a Unicorn- But What About Patents?

A study of the IP positions of Unicorns (i.e., startups with valuations of over $1 Billion) conducted in 2015 revealed that 30% of US Unicorns have no US patent assets at all, while approximately 62% have 10 or fewer US patent assets (i.e., issued patents plus pending applications). Some of the Unicorns analyzed have since started creating a solid IP portfolio, many are still falling behind. Is it in the best interest of management and investors of these companies to examine their IP position and analyze their exposure, particularly if they are planning to enter new markets? Are these Unicorns at a higher risk of impending litigation? How does the lack of patents impact the success of their exit events, like an IPO or acquisition? These and other questions will be discussed.

How China is Changing the Global Patent System

In addition to taking as many questions as possible, we will specifically address: (1) How Chinese filings constitute a massive trove of global prior art, which by sheer numbers will dominate the global prior art library within a few years. (2) How the Chinese government has been incentivizing and subsidizing patent filing and patent fees. (3) Strategies for confronting the language barrier now so as to not be left in the dark with respect to the new global prior art landscape.

Solutions for the U.S. Patent System

WIPO’s World Intellectual Property Indicators report for 2019 is eye-opening. In 2018, the U.S. saw a 1.6% decline in the number of patent applications filed, which is the first decline since 2009. Meanwhile, patent filings grew by more than 5% worldwide. Patent filings grew by double digits in China (11.6%). The EPO saw nearly a 5% increase. Even low-and middle-income countries are seeing substantial increases in patent filings: Pakistan (+27.8%), Philippines (+26.7%), Uzbekistan (+17.5%), Morocco (+14.1%) and Vietnam (+12.8%) recorded particularly rapid growth in 2018. Meanwhile, U.S. applicants filed the largest number of applications abroad (230,085) in 2018, which is more than double third-place Germany (106,753) and more than triple fourth place Korea (69,459). These patent filing statistics seem to confirm what those in the monetization, patent litigation and venture capital business have been reporting for several years – innovators and funding are shifting away from the U.S. To conclude CON2020, this roundtable discussion will focus on the core reasons for what appears to be a shift away from the U.S. patent system and the solutions policy makers and legislators can and should adopt.

Myths of Litigated Patents

Conventional wisdom argues that litigation is a tax on innovation, and the PTO plays a role due to high grant rates. Accordingly, it is important to know:

1.  Which patent examiners are issuing litigated patents
2.  Are examiners who are “rubber stamping” patents issuing litigated patents at a           disproportionately higher rate
3.  Are examiners with less experience issuing more litigated patents?

In sum, do patent examiners who issue litigated patents have common characteristics? Intuition would argue that those examiners who issue the most patents (approximately one patent every three business days) would exhibit a higher litigation rate. Surprisingly, two studies by Professor Sean Tu suggest that this is wrong.

Join Gene Quinn, President & CEO of IPWatchdog, Inc. founder and twice named one of the global Top 50 Most Influential People in IP, along with Dr. Sean Tu, Professor at WVU College of Law and Megan McLoughlin, Product Director for LexisNexis® IP, on Thursday, October 15, 2020, at 12 pm (noon) ET, for a free webinar discussion.

During this webinar we will discuss:

  • Which types of examiners tend to issue patents that later undergo litigation
  • The issues at stake during prosecution for different types of examiners
  • How this knowledge can impact your prosecution practice
