Chicago partner Ken Dort authored a chapter titled “Developing Effective Patent Strategies for Ideas and Concepts in a Digital Age” for an Aspatore Books publication on best practices for understanding the influence of the Supreme Court's 2010 decision in Bilski v. Kappos on business method patent law.


The publication features partners from the nation's leading law firms and offers tips on advising clients post-Bilski, navigating new legal standards for patent eligibility and deciding on alternatives to the machine-or-transformation test.
