August 20: Section 101 Reform: Prospects and Pitfalls (Live MBHB Webinar)

It is no secret that U.S. Supreme Court jurisprudence on subject matter eligibility over the past decade has seriously disrupted the settled expectations of inventors, innovative companies, universities, and their counsel. With no evidence that the Supreme Court has any intention (or recognition) of solving these problems, Congress is the only branch of government with the ability to make meaningful change. For the past several months, Senators Tillis and Coons (chair and ranking member of the IP Subcommittee of the Senate Judiciary Committee) have met with stakeholders, prepared draft legislation, and held three days of hearings on the issues, entertaining 45 witnesses from the political and patent-concerned spectrum. We expect a bill to be introduced later this summer.
We will discuss the bill (or the draft if not yet introduced), the process, the politics, and the prospects of meaningful legislative change. We will also discuss possible pitfalls in the legislation, from the political horse-trading certain to occur to the likelihood that the Supreme Court will find fault with any attempt to rein in their reconstruction of patent eligibility through judicial fiat. The webinar will address the following:
  • The draft amendments to Sections 100, 101, and 112(f)
  • The stakeholders positions: biotech, pharma, high tech, academics, “public interest groups”
  • Issues solved and raised by the proposed amendments.

July 1, 8+29: Skeletons in the Closet - The Importance of Due Diligence


Failure to conduct proper due diligence can mean billions in unwanted costs to your organization or your client.

Effective due diligence investigations contribute to informed decision making by enhancing the amount and quality of information available to decision makers and by ensuring that this information is systematically used to make the best choices based on cost, benefit, and risk.
In this free Continuing Legal Education (CLE) program you will learn about the purpose, legal requirements and recent developments for due diligence and hear about organizational strategies to strengthen due diligence efforts and mitigate financial or operational risk.
After completing this course, you will be able to:

June Free Course: Protecting Plant Innovation: Hemp, CBD & Plant IP Laws Under The 2018 Farm Bill

Technological advances increasingly find application in agriculture. From new varieties obtained through improved or genetically enhanced breeding techniques, to “smart” and AI-enhanced farming, intellectual property issues have closely tracked these developments. The United States has more forms of legal protection for plant-related inventions than any other country.
This program will provide an executive summary overview of the core concepts in protecting plant IP (accessible to all audiences) and include an update on the 2018 Farm Bill, which significantly expanded IP protection possibilities and included key changes impacting the Hemp and CBD industries. The course will also review important recent patent caselaw, and best practices to ensure IP protection is not inadvertently lost through common business practices in the product development process. Finally, the presenters will discuss how the ever-expanding legal cannabis industry is interfacing with the complex strata of laws and regulations affecting it, with an emphasis on IP issues.
