NJIPLA is reviving its Dinner Speaker Series. Our next event will be held in September 2019. These Series will offer dinners at a local NJ restaurant, presentation on a relevant IP topic and single CLE credit. NJIPLA, seeking to bring its members together and provide networking opportunities, will provide these events at-cost.
Our first event was held on Tuesday, April 30th. Ken Sonnenfeld (King & Spalding) presented “Digging Into the Weeds of the Supreme Court’s Funk Brothers Case to Dig Out of 101 Ineligibility.” The presentation delved into the legal and technological issues the Supreme Court’s Funk Brothers decision and explore whether the USPTO’s current practice of relying on the Funk Brothers case to reject patent claims to purified natural products is proper.
