Understanding Business Method PatentsMarch 16, 2007

On Wednesday, April 25, executives and business leaders in information technology, financial services and the insurance industry are invited to learn how to protect and maximize their companies’ greatest assets…their ideas.Three attorneys from McKee, Voorhees, & Sease will be leading a 1/2-day seminar discussing business method patents. Topics discussed will include managing the risks associated with patent infringement, learning to identify potentially patentable innovations in business processes and business systems, capturing value for intellectual assets, and recent developments in the Patent Office and the courts. ‘In some industries, including the financial services and insurance industries, patents have moved from an obscure topic of little relevance to one of intense interest tied to the future success of the business,’ said Patent Attorney Jeffrey D. Harty. ‘The purpose of our seminar is to provide some information and context to those who may be most affected by trends in business method patents.’ The seminar will be held Wednesday, April 25, 2007 at The Suites of 800 Locust, 800 Locust Street, Des Moines, Iowa and will run from 9 a.m. to noon. Registration is free but required as seating is limited. To pre-register or for a complete agenda, call Sarah at 515-288-3667 x 284 or email
