Webinar Recordings & Materials

On December 15, 2014, the USPTO issued a new comprehensive Interim Guidance document for examination of subject matter eligibility under 35 U.S.C. § 101

In this webinar, Sterne Kessler attorneys John M. Covert and Miklos Gaszner, Ph.D., focus on the guidelines as they pertain to nature-based product claims. Some of the topics addressed include:

  • How do the guidelines and recent court decisions affect decision-making on whether to file a patent application?
  • How to prosecute pending applications in view of the guidelines and recent cases.
  • How the guidelines can be used as a roadmap to draft new applications and claims.
