About The Symposium:
With Patents becoming a core part of existing economic ecosystem, particularly for Software, Information Technology, IoT, Embedded Systems, and Telecom industries, exploitation of Patent Portfolio has become an industry in itself, especially with the cost of development and protection of the portfolio being enormous. It is therefore crucial to understand important Patent issues, not only by In-House IP Counsels but even more importantly by R&D Scientists so as to minimize efforts in Patent Development, and maximize commercial gains. It is crucial to understand nitty-gritty’s of patent portfolio creation, protection, management, and commercialization, without which there would always remain an for a serious blow either from an infringement perspective or from a patent invalidation perspective or the portfolio would remain under-commercialized. Exclusivity rights granted through patents can only be utilized if there is comprehensive knowledge of various patent related issues, more so when National Patent Laws & Practices relating to prosecution practices, drafting practices, examination practices, enforcement practices and commercialization practices differ substantially across geographies. Furthermore, with growing clarity concerns on Software Patentability in India, and new guidelines coming out for Computer related Inventions (CRI), it is imperative to understand how such guidelines are actually being implemented in real-life Patent applications. Sessions of the Seminar would also help understand how Indian Companies Strategize in view of the dynamic policy changes in the software industry. Lastly, with a number of cases being filed in 2015-16 on FRAND issues, it is very critical for all concerned stakeholders to understand how such litigations may impact them, how standard patents are being interpreted and challenged these days, along with how Competition Commission and other like regulatory bodies are handling complex royalty rate and unfair competition issues. The Seminar would answer clearly on all issues mentioned above and much more.
