The In re Bilski decision has changed the way business method patents are drafted and certain industries are being affected more than others.  Now that the claimed business method must be linked to a transformative process, what adjustments can we expect to how applications are drafted and claimed?  Do you have to reassess your portfolio and determine which business method patents may be vulnerable to attack?  What impact has these changes had on your licensing agreements and royalty streams?

Thomson Reuters IP Solutions has brought together this panel of patent attorneys experienced in business method patent prosecution and litigation to discuss the issues and challenges ahead. 

Among the topics of discussion:

  • A historical look at business method patents, from start to present - State Street to Bilski
  • An expert analysis of how the Supreme Court may handle the Bilski case
  • The Patent Trade Office's reaction to the Bilski decision
  • The impact the Bilski decision has had on existing business method patents, with a key focus on the financial services industry
