Wednesday, January 09, 2019

In this webinar, Brooks Kushman shareholders Isaac Slutsky and Rachel Smith discussed the revised guidance to examiners and other USPTO personnel concerning the evaluation of subject matter eligibility under 35 U.S.C. § 101.  84 Fed. Reg. 5 by the USPTO, and review potential strategies to maximize the benefit from the changes, while avoiding potential downsides.

Topics include:

•  What cases the revisions will affect
•  How the revised guidelines will impact subject matter eligibility questions for patents involving abstract ideas
•  How the revisions will help to streamline Alice/Mayo analysis in the future
•  How to submit comments on the guidance
•  What is the “practical application” aspect of the analysis of claims moving forward
