Focusing on our current business environment which encourages collaboration and joint research and development, a panel of patent attorneys will discuss: 1) provisions of the America Invents Act and court decisions such as Stanford v. Roche in application to employer's rights to employee's invention; 2) circumstances under which an employee may have a duty to assign his invention; 3) specific issues in connection with inventions originating from research funded by the Federal government; and 4) IP rights in inventions created under collaborative agreements.
