55th Annual Intellectual Property Law Conference, The John Marshall Law School Center for Intellectual Property
Husch Blackwell Partner Edward Manzo
discusses the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Bilski v. Kappas
and the subsequent case law on how the Supreme Court ruling was applied in courts of appeal, district courts and the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). Manzo covers over a dozen USPTO cases from just the first few weeks of 2011. He also offers suggestions on how to craft patent application claims that would pass muster under the new precedent and USPTO "Interim Guidelines" of July 2010.
