Software Patents – Twin Cities IEEE Computer Society

February 8 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm EST

There is a popular misconception that patenting software innovations is prohibited in the United States. There is also a mistaken belief that “software patents” are unenforceable.

This Software Patent Presentation, as presented by Benjamin Edlavitch of Edlavitch Law PLLC, will debunk these myths and provide practical approaches to procuring patents on software innovations as well as enforcing, defending, and monetizing such patents.

Ben is a USPTO registered patent attorney with unique technical backgrounds in the life sciences, software, and electrical and computer engineering. Also, with over 26 years of experience in the IT industry (8+ years as a software developer and 18+ years as an IP law specialist), Ben advises clients on complex commercial agreements and technology licenses. This includes counseling clients on open source software issues and other legal concerns associated with computing and e-commerce.
