We're excited to introduce the Mossoff Minute: a monthly Patently Strategic Podcast segment designed to keep you informed on significant events in the patent world – particularly those events relating to the battle that rages on between the ragtag group of rebels fighting to restore our patent system to its former Gold Standard against the all too powerful forces spending billions to destroy the ladder they once climbed up on. This segment builds on our Patent Wars episode, and features short conversations with Professor Adam Mossoff, providing updates and quick takes on movements in patent reform, significant court rulings, innovation policy happenings, and occasional Star Wars references. We also publish 60 second videos from these segments to TikTok, Instagram Reels, and YouTube Shorts.
Mossoff Minute: Amgen v. Sanofi
Below is the first ever Mossoff Minute, covering the Supreme Court's recent ruling in Amgen v Sanofi and its impact on patents and innovation in the life sciences, pharma, and biotech industries.
About Professor Adam Mossoff
Professor Adam Mossoff is a Professor of Law at the Antonin Scalia Law School at George Mason, where he teaches a wide range of courses, including property, patent law, trade secrets, trademark law, remedies, and internet law. Adam is an expert on patent law and innovation policy. He has been invited five times to testify before Congress on legislation addressing patent law and innovation policy, and his research has been relied on by the Supreme Court, by the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, and by federal agencies. His writings on IP law have also appeared in the Wall Street Journal, Forbes, and the New York Times.
You might remember Adam from his involvement and exceptional insights shared in our Patent Wars episode where we discuss both the biggest problems facing patenting, as well as the best possible solutions for reform:
Or from an even more recent interview, where we discuss the history and purpose of patents in society. We couldn’t have asked for a better historical tour guide or contemporary ambassador for this important topic. Adam is a wellspring of knowledge in this domain and makes the history come to life – and connects it with modern times – in ways we could only wish our history professors had.
