Presentation details:

Drafting Method Claims for Statutory Subject Matter

  • Determining the necessity of tying a particular method to an apparatus in order to prove patentable subject matter
    • Reconsidering how to describe the means in which an algorithm or data structure is linked to a general purpose computer Recognizing where else data structures might appear
  • Showing that the processor has the ability to execute a particular method Structuring Beauregard claims so that they are directed to a physical, computer-readable medium
  • Ensuring the claim includes more than a “nominal or token recitation” of how it is structured

Limiting PTO Rejections of Software Patents

  • Following examples from biotech patents, which have included successful findings of lab results and working examples of lab data
    • Determining whether similar findings will assist you at the claim drafting phase

  • How these links have led to the specific inventions
