Stephen Mosher Releases Articles on Invention and Software Patents

Recent changes in the Patent Statute and in case law decisions of the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (CAFC) have introduced uncertainty in the eligibility of certain kinds of inventions – particularly inventions that include software as a constituent – for patenting.

In a series of three articles, Mosher addresses the topics of (1) new ideas – discoveries and inventions – as precursors to protectable inventions; (2) whether fundamental practices in several fields such as method inventions are ineligible for patenting under the Patent Statute; and (3) claiming intellectual property rights in software inventions. A fourth article combines the main ideas of the three separate articles in the context of Patenting Software Inventions.

The articles may be accessed on Mr. Mosher’s web page.
