Shook, Hardy & Bacon Partner Bart Eppenauer will be presenting a webinar on Software Patent Eligibility on December 14, 2017. The webinar will review recent decisions surrounding patent eligibility of computer implemented inventions and offer strategies for describing these inventions so they can pass muster at the Patent Office and stand the test of time in the courts.
Eppenauer rejoined Shook after serving as Microsoft’s Chief Patent Counsel for more than a decade. In that role, he led the Patent Group in the Legal and Corporate Affairs department, where he developed Microsoft’s patent portfolio of more than 35,000 issued patents worldwide. Under his guidance, Microsoft’s high-quality patent portfolio resulted in an extremely successful IP licensing program and received top rankings in IEEE Spectrum, BusinessWeek and The Patent Board.
