Recent Developments in US Patent Law

On Thursday, May 28, 2009 the IEEE Consultants' Network of Northern NJ (www.TechnologyOnTap.org) will be holding a dinner meeting at a new location and beginning at a new time.

ABOUT THE TOPIC

Would you like to write your own patent application or just learn more about US patent law?

The presentation will deal with a variety of changes in US patent law that have arisen over the past year or so and the potential consequences thereof. The presentation will begin, however, with a brief introduction to patent law.

Recent developments in patent law revolve around case law that addresses issues including: USPTO changes to patent practice rules; inequitable conduct during patent prosecution; the scope of patentable subject matter; obviousness and standards of patentability; and the availability of permanent injunctions against infringers.

Time will be reserved at the end for questions from the audience, to discuss topics of particular interest.
