Technology transfer webinar 28: Patents: Patentability of Software Inventions and AI – Overview of Legal Systems and Recent Trends

28-06-19 | 10:00 - 11:00 AM CET

Patents: Patentability of Software Inventions and AI – Overview of Legal Systems and Recent Trends in Germany, Japan and other European jurisdictions

How can you get protection for your Software and AI-related inventions?

Software related inventions are often perceived as not patentable. Though this perception is not correct, it is understandable. The law is highly complicated and the fact that every jurisdiction treats this matter differently, doesn't help much. This webinar will shed some light on this topic and help inventors understand how their software related invention scan be protected and what parts are rather difficult to protect. The answers to the following questions will be provided during the webinar:

  1. When is software eligible subject matter and are the requirements different per jurisdiction (Japan, Germany, etc.)?
  2. What clarity requirements are imposed on software inventions and how to overcome them?
  3. What is the inventive step requirement for software inventions?
  4. How are AI-related inventions treated by the law and how can they be protected?

Registration deadline: 27/06/2019

What you will learn during this webinar?

In this webinar, we will cover the following:

  • What is eligible subject matter?
  • How can clarity rejections be avoided?
  • How does a claim need to be written to be acceptable?
  • Case example of applications filed in front of the JPO and EPO with differentiating outcome and advice.
