Is it Really So Obvious? Recent Struggles to Apply the Sanofi Test for Obviousness

Held on Tuesday, November 19 1 pm - 2 pm ET

This webinar is part of the Advanced Webinar Series.

Is it Really So Obvious? Recent Struggles to Apply the Sanofi Test for Obviousness

Join the presenters as they discuss:

  • Confusion around the determination of the “inventive concept”: is it really a “satellite debate”?
  • What constitutes the “state of the art”?
  • What qualifies as “prior art”?  Does it have to be pleaded?  Does it depend on a “reasonably diligent search”?
  • What is “obvious to try”?
