Tomorrow, January 12, at noon, I will be participating in a panel discussion of the Bilski case as we await the Supreme Court’s decision that could significantly change patentability of business method and potentially software patents.  Here is Northwestern’s description of the panel:

Currently pending in the Supreme Court, the Bilski case stands to redefine the boundaries of what is patentable and has captured the attention of major software and technology giants like Microsoft and Google.  Practicing IP attorneys will discuss the potential ramifications of this case on patent law and the issues presented by patenting abstract business practices and innovations.

Joining me on the panel will be:

  • Andrea Augustine from Foley & Lardner; and
  • Thomas Donovan from Barnes & Thornburg.

The panel is open to the public, so please join us January 12 at noon in Northwestern Law’s Room RB140.
