On January 22, 2014, the AABANY Intellectual Property Committee and the NYCLA Entertainment, Media, Intellectual Property and Sports Committee presented a CLE entitled “Patents 101: What Can be Protected by Patent Rights." Robins, Kaplan, Miller & Ciresi LLP hosted the event at their office at 601 Lexington Avenue. Wan Chieh (Jenny) Lee moderated the panel featuring: Sapna Palla (Counsel at Kaye Scholer), and Annie Huang (Counsel at Robins, Kaplan, Miller & Ciresi LLP). The panelists addressed the developing Supreme Court jurisprudence on the requirements for patent eligible subject matter, particularly focusing on the impact of the recent Myriad decision on the life science industry, and the highly anticipated Alice v. CLS case relating to patent eligibility of computer implemented inventions, for which oral arguments will be heard by the Supreme Court at the end of March this year. The presentation was well-received, and the audience members actively engaged in questions and discussions with the panelists. Despite the weather condititions, a total of 13 attorneys attended this event. Attendees received 1.0 credit in Areas of Professional Practice.
