Abstract :

Biosimilar technologies are at the forefront of both science and the law with intellectual property issues playing a large strategic role. Understanding intellectual property issues is not always easy and biotechnologies sometimes raise challenges regarding how to manage and protect intellectual property rights. The law regarding how biotechnology can be protected is constantly evolving and it is important to keep abreast of ongoing developments. This presentation is intended to familiarize the audience with current patent issues facing those in the biosimilar space as well as legal issues presented by the Biologics Price Competition and Innovation Act.
