Surety to Host Webinar on Patent Creation
Surety announced today that it will host a webinar on October 31 entitled, “Patent Evidence Creation in an Electronic R &D Environment,” which will address the electronic R&D policies and procedures used to support patents, the specific role ELNs play in patent evidence creation and patent filing procedures.
“Even in electronic lab environments, more than 87 percent of research data is still preserved on paper because very few companies want to take a risk in court with their patents,” said Michael H. Elliott, President of Atrium Research. “But change is in the air, several innovative companies are taking the viewpoint that they need to implement electronic environments to improve their efficiency. They have researched the case law, patent proceedings and legislation and have determined that they will be fully protected by implementing an electronic patent and submission infrastructure.”
The “Patent Evidence Creation in an Electronic R&D Environment” Webinar will be moderated by Mr. Elliott and use Symyx Technologies as a case study to debunk the myth that paper evidence is the best and only evidence to defend against patent interference claims. Featured speakers will include the Honorable Bruce Stoner, retired USPTO Chief Administrative Judge and Counsel to Greenblum & Bernstein, P.L.C., who will explore the precedents for using electronic records in the courts and for filing purposes, Ron Krasnow, Sr. Vice President of Intellectual Property at Symyx, John Harris, Manager, Security Alliances at Adobe Systems and Hamilton Temple, Director of Business Development of Surety. The event will conclude with a question and answer session, led by Elliott.
