On 29 September, Dr John McCann will make a presentation on the assignment of the right of priority of IP rights with emphasis on patents.
John will briefly review some important cases in the EPO, UK and France on this topic which highlight what can happen in a worst case scenario in those jurisdictions when an assignment of the right of priority to a successor in title in the priority period is defective. A series of recommendations will be provided to assist IP practitioners to minimize the potential risks associated with the drafting of IP right of priority assignments.
