Do you know what inventions are patentable? Is DNA, or software, or a new business method patentable? And did you know that each country has its own set of patent laws, so that the answers to these questions vary from country to country?
In a talk entitled “Frontiers in Patent Law,” Dale Regelman will discuss the latest state of the law in the United States regarding subject matter patentability and will compare U.S. law to patent law in other countries. His talk will begin at 3:30 p.m. Thursday (Sept. 8) in the ASA Great Room.
Regelman is a partner in the law firm of Quarles & Brady and provides intellectual property (IP) legal assistance to clients in the computer, chemical, pharmaceutical, and optics industries. He has drafted and filed more than 750 U.S. patent applications and prosecuted to issuance over 400 U.S. patents. He is also listed as inventor on 16 U.S. patents.
His litigation practice includes patent infringement, trademark infringement, and copyright infringement matters.
