Have You Tried Turning It Off and Back On Again?: A Case Against Broader Patentability

When: Tue July 10, 2012 07:30 PM to 09:00 PM

Speaker: Glenn Kerbein

Location: O'Reilly Media

With ongoing court case battles, like with Oracle v. Google, it brings to mind: what is patentable? How did we get to this point? How can legitimate, well-intended inventors work within a legal minefield? This talk explores the breadth and history of patent law. Particularly, the talk focuses on software and software-related patents.
