August 26: Webcast - Kimble v. Marvel: Practical Tips for Extending Licensing Agreements Beyond Patent Expiration

On June 22, 2015, the U.S. Supreme Court issued its decision in Kimble v. Marvel Entertainment, LLC, upholding the long-standing rule that prohibits a patent holder from charging royalties for the use of an invention after the underlying patent has expired. As a result, patent holders may want to consider ways to negotiate competitive, mutually beneficial, and enforceable license agreements that exist beyond the term of the underlying patent.
During this webinar, we will discuss the following and more:
  • The case law leading up to the opinion in Kimble v. Marvel
  • A summary of the opinion
  • Tips and strategies for drafting licensing agreements that extend royalty fee payments beyond the life of a patent
