Ever since the Supreme Court’s decision in Alice v. CLS Bank in 2014, the patent eligibility of software innovations has been in question. Now, more than two years after this far-reaching
This course, taught by Brown Rudnick attorney Shahar Harel, will explore the Supreme Court’s analytical framework for determining whether a patent claim is eligible under 35 U.S.C. § 101. This includes an exploration of the concepts of “abstract ideas” and “significantly more than” an abstract idea with an eye to understanding when software innovations are eligible for patent protection.
Course had useful and timely information
one of the most productive lessons I've had. I'm a patent attorney but not a software patent attorney and this was hugely informative for me - thanks!
I was impressed by how the presenter took us through a number of cases and elegantly explained each one. One of the best I seen on the issue of software patents and how to judge what may be patentable.
Outstanding job with this complicated subject.
I thought the presenter did a very good job covering the case law. I do not practice at all in the area of patent law but he made it very understandable. Would recommend to others.
Feed issues, otherwise very good.
Course and speaker were good
I particularly appreciated the case citations.
Very helpful presentation in a tough-to-explain subject area.
excellent job. not the easiest topic to dive into.
