The Intellectual Property Owners Association (IPO) will offer a one-hour webinar entitled "Inventor Compensation: A Global Approach Needed" on October 31, 2012 beginning at 2:00 pm (ET). A panel consisting of John Conway, Vice President and Global Head of Innovative Healthcare Patent Support at Sanofi; Donald Dowling of White & Case; and Matthew Penarczyk, Associate General Counsel of Microsoft Corporation will illustrate the variations among laws internationally for the remuneration of employee inventors and give advice on how to implement systems within multinationals to aid compliance. The panel will also focus on what kinds of records companies should keep, as well as the negative repercussions that can follow if an employer tells one version of the facts to foreign tax authorities and another version to labor regulators.
The registration fee for the webinar is $120 (government and academic rates are available upon request). Those interested in registering for the webinar can do so here.
