Software in Vehicles – How Can I get my Patent to the Chequered Flag?
Patent applications relating to software inventions and business methods often require particular care in Europe. These considerations are increasingly applicable across all areas of technology.
In this webinar, we will review two recent decisions from EPO boards of appeal relating to software and business method type inventions in the automotive field. We will also discuss lessons that we can learn about from the outcome of the two decisions, and discuss some general approaches to drafting, applicable to software/business method inventions not only in the automotive field but also in other similar areas.
