Inequitable conduct remains a concern for all patent practitioners who have the Duty of Candor, whether they are US practitioners or not. Related patent proceedings co-pending US applications, foreign prosecution, oppositions, litigation, etc. require heightened attention. When can FDA communications cause risk?
