On June 16, I will be taking part in an ABA-hosted Webinar on Patent Subject Matter Eligibility Post-Alice Corp. Our 1.5 hour panel includes myself, Charles Bieneman, Robert Sachs and Alexis Liistro as moderator. Interesting mix of folks and our focus will be on patent practice.
From the brochure:
There have been many articles forecasting the fall of e-commerce patents after Alice Corp. v. CLS Bank International. These predictions have been supported recently by the high number of e-commerce patents being held invalid by United States Courts and the Patent Trial and Appeal Board. However, this panel does not believe that Alice sounds the death knell for e-commerce patents.
In addition to discussing Alice, faculty will also review other guidelines, such as those issued by the United States Patent and Trademark Office and use real-world examples to illustrate the differences between an unenforceable and enforceable e-commerce patent. After attending this program, participants should feel confident in preparing effective and valid e-commerce patents.
