The Future of Software Patents
Start Date: 3/20/2015Start Time: 12:00 PM

Event Description:
The U.S. Supreme Court recently curtailed the patentability of software in Alice (probably a predictable holding given Benson and Flook). The Federal Circuit seems to be paying heed. See Ultramercial. What is left? Diehr for sure and this from Alice: "There is no dispute that… many computer-implemented claims are formally addressed to patent eligible subject matter." But, even if a patentee overcomes the §101 hurdle, he now faces new §112 hurdles as well.

Bring your own lunch and join us in an effort to predict the future of software patents and to brainstorm ways to address §101 and §112 issues.
