EU – Munich International Patent Law Conference 2016

29 Apr 2016

Munich International Patent Law Conference 2016, “The International Reach Of Patents”

This year’s conference topic „The International Reach of Patents“ refers to the question whether a patent for a territory can be infringed by acts, e. g. offers for sale, putting into circulation, and the like, that are being committed outside of that territory for which the patent confers protection.

Since the German Federal Supreme Court’s famous decisions “Funkuhr (radio clock) I and II” of 2002 and 2007, German courts have consistently reached across German borders holding liable entities that had contributed to patent infringements in Germany by committing acts in patent free territories.

This year’s conference aims at exploring how the jurisdictions represented by speakers are handling this situation, namely the UK, France the US, and Spain.

The conference will be held in English with no translation provided

Venue: DPMA Forum, Zweibrückenstr. 12, 80331 Munich, Germany
Date and Time: Friday, 24 June 2016, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.
