AABANY Intellectual Property Committee presents
Navigating the Maze of What is Eligible for Patent Protection
Date/Time: Thursday, February 5, 2015, 6:30-7:30PM
Not everything is eligible for patent protection! In a series of recent decisions, the U.S. Supreme Court, significantly raised the threshold for what types of ideas are eligible for patent protection. Our panelists will discuss the new elevated standard set forth in these recent Supreme Court decisions and its impact, particularly with regards to software, business methods, biologic materials, and medical diagnostics tools. The panelists will further discuss the controversial implementation of these decisions by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and their impact.
Now that the Supreme Court has spoken, this CLE seminar revists issues previously discussed in our “Patents 101: What Can Be Protected by Patent Rights?” seminar from last year. Come and find out more about this cutting-edge issue that has significantly changed our patent system!
