On Thursday, July 21st, at 3pm ET, MDMA will host an important (no cost) member-only webinar, “Patent Marking in the World of Medical Devices and The New Standard on Willful Infringement”, hosted by Finnegan, Henderson, Farabow, Garrett & Dunner, LLP.

 

Patent owners can mark their products with their patent numbers to gain additional rights.  In the world of medical devices, questions arise regarding whether to mark the products, how to mark them, and the effects of doing or not doing so.  By marking their products, patent owners can get additional money damages in an infringement lawsuit that they might not get absent the marking.  A court may also increase damages if it finds the infringement was “willful”—a subject recently addressed by the U.S. Supreme Court.  The speakers will discuss during this webinar what you need to know about patent marking, how marking may relate to the topic of willful infringement, and the effect the new guidance by the Supreme Court on willful infringement may have on medical device companies.
