Event – Sydney: What is the meaning of Myriad?

Prior to the High Court of Australia decision in D’Arcy v Myriad Genetics Inc., handed down on 7 October 2015, the law in Australia governing what types of technologies could be patent protected was relatively clear.

In the wake of the Myriad decision, all of this could change. Although the decision relates directly to human genes, the impact of the decision has the potential to affect patent protection on gene technologies more generally, as well as naturally occurring chemicals, ICT inventions and other new technologies. 

Event overview

DCC and AusBiotech welcome you to learn about the background and impact of the decision and IP Australia’s interpretation of it. The practical effects of the decision will be discussed by our expert panel with delegate interaction.
