inovia to Explore 2011 IP Trends and Best Practices at AUTM Annual Meeting

inovia, the leading foreign filing platform provider, today announced that Justin Simpson, its founder and executive director, will moderate a panel on 2011 IP trends and best practices at next week’s AUTM 2011 Annual Meeting in Las Vegas.

While often complicated, costly and time consuming, international patent filing is a critical part of profiting from new technologies and products. Yet in today’s economic climate, universities are experiencing financial pressures and clamoring for ways to save money. In a session entitled, “Cost-Effective International Patenting Strategies,” Simpson will lead a group of panelists to identify cost-saving tactics, share insight into their own international patenting strategies, discuss licensee issues and reveal economical best practices for foreign filing.

The panelists include technology transfer executives from:
• California Institute of Technology
• Emory University
• Indiana University
• University of Illinois

During the session, Simpson will also share findings from inovia’s upcoming “U.S. 2011 Global Patent & IP Trends Indicator,” the company’s annual look at how the economy impacted global IP strategy in 2010 and will affect foreign filing plans in 2011.
