2017 IP Academy Series: Maximizing Patent Terms

Tuesday, September 19, 2017
04:30 PM - 06:00 PM ET

Join us for a discussion regarding best practices for maximizing patent terms.

The US Patent Office calculates Patent Term Adjustment (PTA) and publishes it on the face of a patent. This number, however, is computer generated and may contain errors, especially when the items are misidentified on Public PAIR. We will discuss how to properly calculate the patent term of a US patent and how to maximize the patent term without any additional cost.

Topics will include:

  • How to calculate PTAs and patent terms
  • Recent PTA and double patenting case law
  • Proposed strategies to maximize patent terms
