Overview:

Lack of consistency and clarity remains in the US patent eligibility laws since the Supreme Court’s notable rulings in Alice and Mayo. Several small and medium-sized enterprises and start-ups also noted that the rulings weaken innovation and decrease competition. Moreover, the judicial abstract idea exception of patent eligibility under 35 U.S.C. § 101 continues to impair patent incentives and poses concerns about protecting investments in technology-related inventions.

To thrive amidst uncertainties, start-ups should be well-versed in any developments surrounding patent laws to successfully navigate through legal complexities, build sound patent portfolios, and recognize common mistakes which could result in long-term repercussions.

Join a panel of key thought leaders and distinguished professionals organized by The Knowledge Group as they provide a comprehensive discussion of the latest trends and developments in patent prosecution. Speakers, among other things, will also offer practical tips and strategies for managing patent portfolios for startups.

Key topics include:

  • Patent Prosecution: Recent Trends and Developments
  • Examining the Current Patent Eligibility Jurisprudence and Its Impact on Innovations
  • Understanding the Patent Eligibility Under 35 U.S.C. § 101
  • Recognizing Common Challenges and Pitfalls
  • Best Practices and Strategies in Managing Patent Portfolios for Startups
  • What Lies Ahead
