    The Alice Corp. Pty. Ltd. v. CLS Bank decision created a big shift in the patent law landscape, particularly in the evaluation of patent subject matter eligibility. Thus, leading to the rise in patent eligibility cases. However, the Alice decision’s flawed and vague interpretation left litigants and trial courts in sheer confusion.

    The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) recently released a revised patent subject matter eligibility guidance on the evaluation of patent-eligible subject matter, which seeks to clarify Alice’s interpretation. This new development continues to shape the patent law landscape. While the future remains uncertain, it is essential for businesses and their counsel to be in the know of updates to keep them guided and avoid pitfalls.

    Listen as intellectual property lawyers Sterling Fillmore (Workman Nydegger) and James Signor (Leydig, Voit & Mayer, Ltd.) present the audience with an in-depth discussion of the implications of Alice on patent enforcement. Speakers will dig deeper as they analyze critical issues in light of emerging trends and developments, and offer practical tips and strategies to avoid pitfalls in this rapidly changing legal climate.

    Key topics include:
    • Trends and Updates in the Patent Law
    • Subject Matter Eligibility: The Post-Alice
    • Issues in Evaluating Patent Eligibility
    • Notable Cases and Rulings
    • Risk Mitigation Strategies
    • Best Practices
    • What Lies Ahead
