Read Frequently Asked Questions

This webinar will show how you can build and maintain research records, that are used to support patent claims, to meet stringent requirements and ensure that they can support in filing patent applications and defend in case of litigation.

Why Should You Attend:

The process of obtaining patents can be an involved, expensive and specialized process although the USPTO and other governmental agencies have in recent years tried to simplify the process and promote electronic submission.

The documentation requirements for research supporting to the granting of a patent is changing. The “first to invent” will no longer be the one to get the patent. It increasingly concerns proper control of records that corroborate the invention and distinguish it from prior public disclosures.

This webinar will help you establish a system that will minimize problems in filing and defending patents.

Areas Covered in the Webinar:

  • Building and maintaining a Research Records solution.
  • Evaluation of Electronic Lab Notebook systems and alternatives.
  • Building policies and procedures.
  • Are Trade Secrets still a viable approach?
  • Impact of America Invents Act.
  • Filing patents.

Who Will Benefit:

  • Research & Development
  • Records Management
  • Legal
  • Information Technology
  • Validation

Topic Background:

On September 16, 2011, President Obama signed the Leahy-Smith America Invents Act into law. Several important changes took effect on the date of enactment, including some significant litigation related changes and the new standard for instituting reexamination. Most other changes take effect in one year, although the changes to the definition of prior art (including the "first-to-file" provisions) and new post-grant review proceedings will not take effect for 18 months.

Research records that are used to support patent claims must meet stringent requirements to be viable in support of patent applications and in case of litigation. They must be authenticated records that support:

  • Conception – Complete idea on how to make and use invention.
  • Reduction to Practice – Description of a working model of the invention.
  • Corroboration – witness(s).
