IEEE Consultants’ Network of San Diego

Topic: THE BRIGHT NEW HORIZON FOR SOFTWARE PATENTS
Speaker: Robert Cogan

In the right setting, a software patent is an extremely valuable asset. The Supreme Court and the United States Patent Office have revamped the entire software patent regime for the better. There are new ways to demonstrate true innovation, for example, showing that a program creates a new machine as the code is being executed. Find out the differences between a patent application that the Patent Office will welcome and treat seriously and a patent application that would be rejected out of hand as ineligible for patent protection. New opportunities are out there.
