After the Alice Decision: Obtaining Patent Rights for Software

In 2014, the U.S. Supreme disrupted the patent landscape with the Alice v. CLS Bankdecision by drastically changing the boundaries and scope of what types of innovations can receive patent protection.

Based on the Alice decision, federal courts have invalidated a large number of software-based patents that were being asserted by patent owners in litigation proceedings. Furthermore, the United States Patent & Trademark Office has limited what can be patented when it comes to financial technology (FinTech) applications as well as other types of software-related technologies, including mobile and web-based applications.

This presentation will provide an overview of the Alice decision, how the federal courts and the United States Patent & Trademark Office are using the Alice decision, and steps that are being taken by intellectual property owners to successfully obtain and uphold their patent rights for software-related technologies.
