Kimble v Marvel:
Private Right versus Public Interest in Patent Termination

When: Wednesday, August 19, 2015, 12:00 pm to 2:00 pm

Where: Beverly Hills Bar Association (Directions) (Parking at 241 No. Canon Drive)  

"Allowing even a single company to restrict its use of an expired or invalid patent would deprive the consuming public of the advantage to be derived from free exploitation of a discovery. To permit such a result would impermissibly undermine the patent laws." So wrote Justice Kagan in the Supreme Court's decision for Kimble v. Marvel. Does this signal a looming reversal of rights expansions seen in recent decades? What do IP and Entertainment attorneys need to know in the wake of such a pronouncement? Find out August 19 at the Beverly Hills Bar Association, with our panel, "Kimble v. Marvel: Private Right versus Public Interest in Patent Termination", in the BHBA Conference Center.
