The BBA presents live webinars via Zoom. Access to this program is free, included as part of your member benefit.

This presentation by the European IP firm Carpmaels & Ransford will provide an update on how the transfer of the right to claim priority is currently treated in Europe, including a discussion of the EPO’s recent CRISPR decision and its wider ramifications. In addition, this program will explain the steps you can take to avoid priority rights issues arising, and will also set out possible remedial action which can be taken if you or your client have unfortunately found yourself in a bit of a priority rights pickle. The program will end with a brief Q&A session.
