Washington, D.C., partner Mercedes Meyer spoke at Bloomberg BNA’s November 13 conference, “Impact of the Supreme Court on Patent Enforcement.” A follow-up article titled, “High Court Changed Game in Patent Law But Future Brighter, Panelists Say,” in BNA’s Patent, Trademark & Copyright Law Daily gives some key takeaways of what the panelists discussed at the conference.
Mercedes participated in a panel titled, “Patent eligibility under Section 101” regarding the Supreme Court’s fourth Section 101 decision in four years, which rejected an invention on using computers to mitigate financial contract risk as patent ineligible. The case under discussion was Alice Corp. Pty Ltd. v. CLS Bank Int'l.
The article noted that Mercedes, along with Bart Newland of Biogen Idec, complained about the Alice decision on section 101, though their complaints mostly reached back to the high court’s earlier Mayo and Myriad decisions.
