Mark A. Thomas, partner at Dilworth IP, will be hosting a FREE webinar on Wednesday, June 8th at 1:00 PM (EDT). This session, entitled Two Years After Alice – A Challenging Adventure for Software Patents, will discuss the aftermath of the 2014 Supreme Court decision in Alice Corp v. CLS Bank International. Alice has grown beyond a less than satisfying Supreme Court decision to become the most significant threat to billions of dollars in software patents.  This webinar will be of particular benefit to in-house counsel as it will explore recent Patent Office guidance and federal court decisions with a practical focus on protecting software and getting more patents allowed under evolving Alice standards.  The webinar will also touch on the impact of Alice and how it has changed the legal landscape.
