IP & Pizza™: The Fight Over What Subject Matter is Eligible for Patent Protection

Historically, anything under the sun made by man has been considered eligible for patent protection. However, recent Supreme Court decisions and guidelines from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office have reigned in what is considered made by man, creating new challenges to obtaining patents for nature-based therapeutics, personalized medicine, medical diagnostics, and other related technologies.

Please join the Center for Technology Licensing and Carissa Childs, Attorney at Law, LeClairRyan, for a discussion and review of these decisions and guidelines, and summarize the current trends in patent prosecution in these fields. Strategies for crafting applications and claims in these technological fields will also be discussed.

Open to: Cornell students, faculty, staff, and anyone interested in learning about patent eligibility.

Please RSVP to [email protected].
