PatentsPostGrant.com June Webinar
June 19 marks the 5th anniversary of the Supreme Court’s impactful decision in Alice Corp. v. CLS Bank, which dramatically changed the analysis of patentable subject matter in both patent prosecution and patent litigation.
Currently, a bipartisan group of Congressional members introduced what could be the first revisions to Section 101 of the Patent Act in nearly 70 years. Over the last few days, Congress has held multiple hearings on the issue, with dozens of witnesses testifying on the impact this proposed legislation could have on industries ranging from tech to biopharma.
In the June webinar we will discuss the USPTO’s revised 101 guidelines, the scope of the proposed legislation, its chances for passage, and the actions that patent owners and potential defendants may want to take to minimize the uncertainty that comes with potential legislative action
