AIPLA Features Webinar on Using the USPTO’s Bilski/Section 101 Guidelines to Gain Allowance of Software and Business Method Inventions

Sunday, February 13th, 2011

On February 10,  a panel of private practice and corporate counsel (Ken Nigon, Anthony Castiglione, Bob Bohanek and Ann McCrackin) outlined major features of the USPTO’s Interim Bilski Guidelines for assessing Section 101 eligibility of process claims.  Additionally, the panel addressed the potential impact of Federal Circuit’s December 2010 ruling in Research Corporation Technologies, Inc. v. Microsoft Corporation on the Bilski Guidelines.  The panel offered practical guidance for prosecutors in examples of abstract and non-abstract ideas, and suggestions on leveraging the Bilski Guidelines when working with examiners.  The corporate panelists (Anthony Castiglione and Bob Bohanek from USAA) shared their practical insights from their first-hand experience of working with the PTO on Section 101 issues.  The slides for the webinar will be available on the Computer and Electronic Committee web pages at sometime the week of February 14th.
