On December 6, 2013, in Alice Corp. v. CLS Bank Int’l., the U.S. Supreme Court reviewed another issue in determining patentable subject matter. Since the Supreme Court’s 2012 decision in Mayo v. Prometheus, only few guidelines are available from the Court and the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), with the Federal Circuit’s en banc decision in Alice Corp. illustrating the current split even among the judges.
Please join Morgan Lewis as we review the background of the U.S. practice in determining patentable subject matter and its difference with other countries’ practices. We will also discuss the currently available USPTO examination guidelines and how to use them.
