    Event Synopsis:
    The Alice decision continues to be a significant part of the U.S. patent law landscape. For the past years, the ruling has been contributory to the rejection of thousands of patent claims in the realm of software and business methods, hugely impacting various technology areas. Despite this, the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and the courts are still clarifying Alice’ interpretation and application because of the immense complexity in this area of law. Recently, the USPTO issued its 2019 Revised Patent Subject Matter Eligibility Guidance which modifies the procedures in identifying whether patent claims are directed towards judicial exception.
    With the continuous rise in patent eligibility cases being filed in district courts and the increase in significant legal and regulatory developments, changes and new trends in this field of law are yet to come. Thus, leaving the patent landscape to an unknown future.

    Join a panel of key thought leaders and professionals assembled by The Knowledge Group as they delve into an in-depth analysis of the current trends and recent court rulings involving Alice. Speakers will also offer an outlook of the 2019 patent law landscape in light the post-Alice developments in 2018. Critical issues and best practices for patent application and litigation will also be provided.

    • Significant Trends and Developments in 2018
