Patenting & Licensing When Subject Matter Eligibility is Uncertain
Join us for a discussion of recent trends in patent subject matter eligibility, including the impact of Alice v. CLS Bank, Ariosa v. Sequenom, and related cases spanning the biotech and software industries. Should companies continue pursuing patent protection? Are you concerned you are in- or out-licensing patents that may be invalid under these changing standards? We will discuss best practices for pursuing patent protection and considerations for licensing in this climate of uncertain subject matter eligibility.
DURING THE DIALOGUE, YOU WILL HEAR FROM:
- Jennifer Spaith, Partner, Seattle, Patent Department
- Rhona Schmidt, Partner, Minneapolis, Technology Commerce Department
- Erik Nyre, Associate, Minneapolis, Patent Department
- 9:00 am–10:00 am PST
