Topic: The Patentability of Computer Software
Computer control is even more pervasive in systems engineering in this day of the Internet of things. In this presentation, we will discuss patentability of computer software and ways to successfully exploit new software developments in the course of project management. We will address how recent Supreme Court decisions and extensive guidance from the United States Patent Office affect patent eligibility of computer programs. Truly creative methods and program machines remain patentable. We will touch upon the decreasing eligibility of the class of patents that has been characterized by simply computerizing abstract thoughts.
