Yesterday, the Supreme Court issued its long-awaited decision in CLS Bank v. Alice Corp. on patent eligibility standards for computer implemented inventions. This decision will impact current 101 challenges in CBM proceedings, and shape patent procurement/claiming strategies for software related methodologies going forward.
Please join me and my authoritative panel for this special edition of the PatentsPostGrant.com webinar series. Together with my colleagues Michael Kiklis, author of the recently released treatise, “The Supreme Court on Patent Law,” and Stephen Kunin, former Deputy Commissioner for Patent Examination Policy at the USPTO, we will endeavor to explore this important ruling.
