McDonnell Boehnen Hulbert & Berghoff LLP will be offering a live webinar entitled "Patent-Eligibility in 2018: Current Status and Best Practices" on February 20, 2018 from 10:00 am to 11:15 am (CT). In this presentation, Patent Docs author and MBHB attorney Michael Borella will discuss the state of software and business method patent-eligibility in 2018 by reviewing what changed (and what did not change) in 2017. Topics to be covered include:
• Overview of the most recent Federal Circuit case law regarding Section 101;
• Where this law is relatively clear, and where it is not;
• The impact of the USPTO not making any significant updates to its subject matter eligibility guidelines;
• Best practices for drafting and prosecuting software and business method inventions in light of the above.
While there is no fee to participate, attendees must register in advance. Those wishing to register can do so here. CLE credit is pending for the states of California, Illinois, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, and Virginia.
