|SEMDA Welcomes MARK LEAHEY, President of The Medical Device Manufacturers Association|
Tuesday, March 18, 2014
5:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Program will begin promptly at 6:30 PM
City Club of Buckhead, Atlanta GA
Both members of the MDMA and SEMDA rely heavily upon a strong and robust patent system to attract the capital needed to invest in new life-saving medical technologies. Any changes to the patent system that would devalue property rights or reduce the penalties for patent infringement could have a chillingly negative effect on the development of breakthrough medical treatments of tomorrow.
Join Mr. Leahey for SEMDA's interactive Quarterly Meeting as he discusses the need for balanced and reasonable efforts to improve the U.S. patent system. Come prepared to learn what is going on in Washington, while seeking your own answers during the Q & A Session. Read more about Mr. Leahey here.
Topics up for discussion will include:
1. Seeking appropriate steps to curb abusive demand letters;
2. Finding the right answers for "patent trolls", an emerging concern for reputable start-up medical device companies, individual inventors, and other innovation models such as those who develop technologies and license to larger players for distribution purposes;
3. Patent laws that make it costly and burdensome for innovators to defend their intellectual property.
