The Computer Law Committee is concerned with aspects of intellectual property law which concern computer, software, and Internet related inventions, products, properties, and services. The Committee periodically presents seminars on such matters.
Seminars and roundtable discussions will discuss issues such as:
- how to best claim and disclose software inventions given the current trend by courts to more narrowly construe claims
- how to best claim Internet, propagated signal, and doing-business inventions
- the effect on software applications of recent cases involving the written description requirement
- the demands of the best mode requirement in software applications, including the need to disclose details of larger inventions of which a given application's software is only a part and of future improvements to the product which are already planned but not coded
- how much disclosure is required for third party software to which the inventor only has access to as object code that is necessary for the practice of an application's invention
- which corners are appropriate to cut, and which are not, when trying to reduce the cost of software applications and
- a litigator's view of how to attack software patents
