Upcoming Free Webinar: Just What is the Federal Circuit Thinking?

Posted on 04/16/2018 by Thomas Pia, in Announcements, Patent Related Court Rulings, Webinar

Dr. Anthony Sabatelli & David Puleo will be presenting a free webinar on Thursday, April 19th at 1:00 PM (ET) for Dilworth IP, entitled, “Just What is the Federal Circuit Thinking? A Path Forward Amid Subject Matter Eligibility Variability.” Tens of millions spent on product development – how do you protect your company’s technology in an environment where the Federal Circuit redefines patent eligible subject matter on nearly a weekly basis, and where the USPTO’s application of these judgments is just as inconsistent? Is subject matter eligibility no longer a question of law and is it now morphing into a question of fact?

This presentation will discuss these and similar questions in light of the many recent court decisions handed down in rapid succession, including Finjan, Core Wireless, Berkheimer, and Aatris. We will look at the consistencies in an attempt to understand the mind of the Federal Circuit, as well as the inconsistencies, like the CFAC’s interpretation of the two-part Alice/Mayo test and, anecdotally, how the USPTO seems to be implementing the court’s opinions.
