Friday, April 1, 2016
04:30 PM - 05:30 PM Eastern Daylight Time

In a case in March, the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit demonstrated flexibility of the recent obviousness doctrine. Join us for a discussion of the current US obviousness standards and how to better respond to obviousness rejections from the patent office.

Topics will include:

  • Review and comparison of US and foreign legal standards for obviousness
  • Recent cases regarding obviousness
  • Practical tips on how to respond to an examiner's rejections

Light snacks and refreshments will be provided after the discussion.
