How Alice and Section 101 are Affecting Patent Applications
Posted in Patents

Steve Saunders, co-chair of Nutter’s Intellectual Property Department, recently drafted a Nutter Insights on how patents should be drafted with an emphasis on technical problems and technical solutions delivered by the claims.

In the Insights, “3 Tips on Drafting Patent Applications With an Eye Toward Alice and Section 101,” Steve outlines three considerations for patent draftpersons when writing a patent application related to computer implemented technology. He also analyzes the difference between the United States and Europe, writing, “In both the U.S. and Europe, patents should detail, in the specification, the technical problems and technical solutions offered by the invention. Such descriptions must sufficiently correspond to the claimed language and, at least in Europe, avoid overreliance on industry buzzwords.”

Maximizing the protection and value of intellectual property assets is often the cornerstone of a business's success and even survival. In this blog, Nutter's Intellectual Property attorneys provide news updates and practical tips in patent portfolio development, IP litigation, trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets and licensing.
