Seminar: Navigating the Uncertain Patent Waters


If your company has or is obtaining a patent, don’t miss this important seminar!

In what many consider a surprise decision, the Supreme Court in Bilski decided that business methods can be patented, and rejected the machine-or-transformation test as the “sole test” for patent eligibility.  However, uncertainty remains on what will pass muster with the courts and the PTO.

Join MAVA’s Vanguard Series for a panel discussion on the implications of the Supreme Court’s decision.  Lead by Moderator Phil Bronner of Novak Biddle, Morrison & Foerster’s Alex Chartove and Alex Hadjis and BuySafe’s Jeff Grass, panelists will address a variety of topics including:

  • The current patentability requirements under Section 101
  • Avoiding “abstract idea” pitfalls
  • The PTO’s likely approach following Bilski
  • Upcoming Federal Circuit cases that may help define patentability
  • Entrepreneur’s view on patents
  • What investors should know about protecting their intellectual property

If your company has or is obtaining a patent, don’t miss this important seminar!  Also, this will be an important briefing for any company that holds patents with method claims – or who has competitors that enforce them.
