Join Fox Rothschild's Janet M. MacLeod and Gerard P. Norton as they discuss the revolutionary Leahy-Smith Act in a panel for the Licensing Executives Society. Research and development leaders will share their insights on the act, which drastically reformed the U.S. patent system from a "first-to-invent" to a "first-inventor-to-file" system, and discuss the impact its provisions will have on technology transfer practices and strategies.
