Patents 101: What Can Be Protected by Patent Rights?

Date/Time: Wednesday, January 22, 2014, 6:30-7:30PM + networking after

Details: Is DNA patentable? Can someone patent my genes? Is software patentable? Can someone patent a mathematical algorithm? What can be protected by patent rights? This question is a hotly contested question that has recently been, and continues to be a subject of scrutiny by the U.S. Supreme Court. The panelists will provide an interactive session (suitable for both patent and non-patent practitioners) discussing the recent developments and the requirements for patent eligible subject matter.
