AIPLA CLE Webinar: Comparison of Patent Prosecution Practices at the USPTO and the EPO

April 30, 2020 12:30 PM to 2:00 PM (Eastern Daylight Time)

There are many differences between patent prosecution practice before the USPTO and patent prosecution practice before the EPO.

In many situations, these differences are significant and impact the patent application drafting process. Furthermore, these differences are often dynamic and vary not just between the drafting processes in each of the jurisdictions, but also within each jurisdiction!

Some of these differences are rooted in ever-changing patent law; others are rooted in each jurisdiction’s idiosyncrasies. For instance, the standards for determining subject matter eligibility may change not only within each jurisdiction, but also from one jurisdiction to another.

This webinar provides a review of some of the differences between the practice before the USPTO and before the EPO. The webinar also attempts to provide some guidance to patent prosecutors to avoid prosecution pitfalls in both jurisdictions.

Presented by: Malgorzata Kulczycka of Hickman Becker Bingham Ledesma LLP, and Eric-Michael Dokter of VJP mbB, Germany, and VJP LLP.
