Webinar on Bilski: Strategies for Prosecuting or Challenging Patent Process Claims Going Forward

Strafford #1

Strafford will be offering a webinar entitled "Bilski: Implications of the Supreme Court's Long-Awaited Ruling: Strategies for Prosecuting or Challenging Patent Process Claims Going Forward" on August 11, 2010, 2010 from 1:00 - 2:30 PM (EDT). Erika H. Arner of Finnegan Henderson Farabow Garrett & Dunner; Leigh J. Martinson of McDermott Will & Emery LLP, Boston; and Daniel R. Brownstone of Fenwick & West LLP will provide guidance for counsel and companies concerning the implications of the Supreme Court's recent decision in Bilski v. Kappos, and outline best practices for defending patent applications -- or challenging them --given the continuing lack of clear guidelines for patentability. The webinar will review the following questions:

  • What are the implications of Bilski for patent eligibility?
  • What is its anticipated impact for past patent eligibility decisions?
  • What strategies should patent applicants employ to improve the likelihood of a successful patent application going forward?
  • What are the best practices for challenging patents following the Bilski decision?

The registration fee for the webinar is $297 ($362 for registration and CLE processing). Those registering by July 23, 2010 will receive a $50 discount. Those interested in registering for the webinar, can do so here.
