Inventive Step: changes, developments and the implications for Singapore – SEMINAR VIDEO
Davies Collison Cave and Lee & Lee recently co-hosted “Making Obviousness Obvious”, a seminar on recent developments in inventive step law and the implications they hold for Singapore.
The requirement of inventive step (i.e. non-obviousness) is the most challenging of all the patentability requirements. Recent cases in the UK and Australia have sought to elaborate what, exactly, constitutes obviousness.
Professor Andrew Christie, Chair of Intellectual Property at Melbourne Law School (University of Melbourne) explored these cases and their implications for Singapore patent law, inviting open discussion and input from guests.
Professor Christie has taught IP law at Cambridge, Duke, Melbourne and Toronto universities, and as part of the NUS / IP Academy Graduate Certificate in IP Law program. He is admitted to legal practice in Australia and England, and has worked in the IP departments of law firms in Melbourne and London.
The full seminar can be viewed here, and we welcome any feedback.
