§101 Panel Discussion

 §101 Panel Discussion Moderator

Gary Jacobs, Oliff PLC

Gary Jacobs will be moderating a §101 panel discussion entitled “I Know It When I See It: Insights Into the Past, Present, and Future of 35 U.S.C. § 101” at the D.C. Bar in Washington, DC. on Tuesday, February 21 from 12:00 p.m.- 1:30 p.m.

During this panel, top PTO officials, a member of the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB), and a former Commissioner will provide additional insight to help make sense of the confusion.  Some of the issues that will be discussed are the increase of rejected patent applications, analysis of District Courts invalidating patents on the grounds of §101, and the increase of reversals from the Federal Circuit.

This program is available for both in-person attendance and live webinar/webcast participation.  If you would like to attend or have any questions, please see the link provided above.
