Upcoming Free Webinar: What is Patent Eligible: The Ever-evolving Section 101 Standard

Dr. Anthony D. Sabatelli, Partner and Chair of the Life Sciences group at Dilworth IP, will be presenting a FREE webinar on Wednesday, September 7th at 1:00 PM (EDT). This installment in the Dilworth IP Webinar Series is entitled What is Patent Eligible: The Ever-evolving Section 101 Standard, and will focus on the inconsistencies in how patent subject matter eligibility is interpreted by the USPTO and the courts. Despite the Supreme Court’s articulation of a two-part test for determining such eligibility (i.e. the Mayo/Alice test), it is often not easy to predict how this test will actually be applied by the U.S. Patent Office or the courts. Dr. Sabatelli’s presentation will offer clarity to those dealing with this uncertainty.
This presentation is a must attend for patent practitioners, inventors, business leaders, and others in the life sciences industry seeking perspective and clarity on this ever-evolving standard. Dr. Sabatelli will discuss:
• Current interpretations of Section 101
• Best practice tips for avoiding or overcoming a Section 101 rejection
• The Supreme Court’s denial of certiorari in the Ariosa v. Sequenom case
• The important guidance provided by the Federal Circuit in two recent cases: Rapid Litigation v. CellzDirect and Enfish v. Microsoft.
