Procuring and Enforcing Business Method and Other Software-Based Patents After Bilski and BMC
August 16-18, 2011 in Alexandria, VA and Southfield, MI
The course and text address why different software applications (e.g., Internet-related software) require special claim drafting, prosecution or litigation techniques. Claim styles and limitations designed to meet the somewhat unclear post-Bilski §101 standards are discussed. This course also explores the countercurrents arising from concern about the quality of some business method patents and from the open source movement.

Art and Science of Patent Searching
August 23-25, 2011 in Alexandria, VA and Southfield, MI
This course comprehensively teaches how to conduct a professional patent search. It provides direction for determining when a search is needed and what types and sources of information should be searched in the process. Users can also choose to attend the Optional Patent Searching Workshop. This workshop gives attendees the opportunity to practice hands-on patent searching alongside the course instructors. The faculty will work with the attendees to answer questions and provide guidance as they execute their searches in real time.
And none of these courses are being offered again in 2011!
