IPW Webinar – Patenting Software in Canada – Why Things Have Gotten a Lot Easier

Webinar Sponsored By: Few things in the patent world have been as contentious as software patents have been over the last decade.

IPW Webinar – Benchmarking IP Operations and Managing Data

For an intellectual property law firm failure is not an option. A single mistake can bankrupt a firm and lead to hundreds of millions, or billions of dollars, lost. The magnitude of what is at stake often leads IP firms to be conservative with respect to management and adoption of new technologies and procedures. Nevertheless, in 2020 the big data…

IPW Webinar – Exploring Software Patentability before the European Patent Office (EPO)

IPW Webinar – Myths of Litigated Patents

Panelists Urge Americans to Trust IP, Trust Vaccines, Listen to Science in COVID-19 Debate

IPWatchdog’s most recent webinar focused on the role of IP in the development of the most promising vaccines to combat COVID-19 and included speakers from the medical community, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the biopharmaceutical industry. The upshot was: wear masks, get the vaccine when it’s available to you, trust the FDA, and stop targeting IP rights, since there’s no evidence they have hindered the process and, in fact, IP has so far played a crucial role in collaboration efforts.

IPW Webinar – Chasing Technology Unicorns – How To Spot Acquisition Targets Early On

The decision to “make” or “buy” is one of, if not, the most important decisions that corporate decision makers have to make when it comes to developing ground-breaking technology.

Apply to Speak or Sponsor: IPWatchdog is Accepting Proposals for SEP2020

As COVID-19 reaches into its sixth month in the United States, life has changed dramatically. Due to the pandemic, our CON2020 has been canceled and we have pivoted to present the panel discussions in a sponsor-supported free online series that will roll out throughout the month of September. The COVID-19 pandemic has also forced the decision to cancel our live SEP2020 program, which was to take place in Arlington, Virginia. Instead, we will once again pivot and present the panel discussions in a free online series. SEP2020 will be made up of a free online series of panels over three days: November 3, 10 & 17. These sponsor-supported panels are free to attend, and registration is open. We are well underway with plans for SEP2020, but we are looking for additional speakers.
