New Book -- Business Method and Software Patents -- A Practical Guide

Wednesday, March 07, 2012

Morgan D. Rosenberg and Richard J. Apley’s new book "is a valuable resource for navigating these still murky waters and should be on the bookshelf of novice and experienced patent practitioners alike," states David R. Wood, Founder and President, Wood & Associates, LLC.

In its 2010 decision in Bilski v. Kappos, the U.S. Supreme Court redefined patentable subject matter for business methods and computer software, but did so without imposing definitive tests and definitions, effectively leaving such guidance for future court decisions and the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

Business Method and Software Patents addresses the drafting of business-method and software patents in the wake of Bilski v. Kappos. Morgan Rosenberg and Richard Apley offer a review and analysis of all relevant case law and guidelines presented by the USPTO. With the use of actual patents filed by the authors, this work provides practical information and guidance on the drafting of successful patent applications.

About the Authors:

Morgan D. Rosenberg is Director of Middle East Operations at Litman Law Offices, and has specialized in patent application drafting for the past 15 years. He is a regular contributor to Intellectual Property Today, and the author of The Essentials of Patent Claim Drafting (OUP, 2011).

Richard J. Apley is Chief Patent Officer at Litman Law Offices, where he supervises the firm's patent attorneys, agents, and technical writers. Previously he worked for the USPTO, where he was Supervisory Patent Examiner and Director of the Office of Independent Inventor Programs.
