Fitch Even Webinar: September 24, 2020
Please join Fitch Even for a free webinar, “Latest Developments in the Patentability of AI- and Software-Based Inventions,” on September 24, 2020, at 9:00 am PDT / 10:00 am MDT / 11:00 am CDT / 12 noon EDT.
The changes in subject matter eligibility prompted by the Supreme Court’s decision in Alice v. CLS Bank and subsequent Federal Circuit and district court cases have continued to make it challenging to patent inventions tied to artificial intelligence and other types of software. The legal analysis often turns on how the software interacts with the outside world and the nature of the problems it solves.
During this webinar, we will provide an update on the latest legal developments in computer software patentability along with guidance on best practices for protecting software-related innovations, covering these topics and more:
- Ramifications of recent post-Alice Federal Circuit cases
- Updated USPTO guidelines
- Tips for patent application drafting
- Tips for responding to office actions
