Artificial Intelligence and Intellectual Property

This webinar will be recorded live on June 3, 2021. The recording will be available within 30 days of the event date. You may pre-order the recording here.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is employed in everything from computer-generated imagery (CGI) to medical diagnoses to 3D printing. However, laws have not kept up with AI innovations. The patent laws of most countries (including the U.S.) define an "inventor" as a person, i.e., a human being.
For example, what if a synthetic entity (AI) assists an inventor or author to invent or create - or what if the synthetic entity independently creates - a painting or literature, discovers a medical breakthrough, or produces a 3D article extrapolated from rudimentary data input? Isn’t the AI an inventor or author? Can the AI itself be protected by patents or copyright? How can AI be used as a supporting tool by inventors and patent attorneys? What are the ethical and professional responsibility implications of employing AI? This presentation will define AI and examine questions that will help suggest best practices for using AI and protecting AI-related intellectual property.

Best Practices for Competitive Patent Analyses and FTOs

This webinar will be recorded live on May 26, 2021. The recording will be available within 30 days of the event date. You may pre-order the recording here.

Technology-based startups need a strong patent strategy that includes an analysis of competitive patents. But there is an inherent tension between the need for a competitive patent analysis and the startup’s limited financial resources. This webinar will focus on best practices for pursuing competitive patents, plus freedom to operate analyses that satisfy the obligations to avoid willful infringement, all while staying within the budget constraints of a startup.

To understand the legal rules as they currently stand, we will discuss the 2016 Halo ruling on willful patent infringement. We will also examine this topic from the point of view of a university technology transfer office (TTO) as a licensor of patent applications. How far should the TTO go with its Freedom to Operate analysis, and what is the TTO’s obligation to the prospective licensee? Lastly, we will suggest best practices for startups and TTOs for Freedom to Operate analyses.

Look Outside Your U.S. Comfort Zone to Patent Diagnostics?

Most tech transfer offices pursue a U.S.-centric approach to patenting. Patent protection is only sought outside the country when a licensee is willing to subsidize the expense. This approach usually makes sense, because of the U.S.'s very significant market, and relatively affordable and reliable patenting. However, recent U.S. Supreme Court decisions on patent eligibility have created a more challenging environment for diagnostic inventions. In this session, we will discuss the prospects for obtaining sufficient U.S. patent rights, and the merits of using a different patent strategy for diagnostic inventions in which U.S. foreign patent protection is the goal.
