UK PATENT OFFICE SOFTWARE PATENTS WORKSHOP


The FFII has informed the IPKat that the UK Patent Office is running a series of workshops on the issue of how to define what a "technical contribution" is in the field of computer-implemented inventions. This issue is the dividing line between patentable and non-patentable software and is the subject of a proposed EU Directive on the patentability of computer-implemented inventions.

The workshops will take place as follows

15 March – Coventry
17 March – Bolton
18 March – Bristol
4 April - Belfast
5 April - Glasgow
7 April - London
8 April - Cardiff

The Patent Office is keen to hear the views of software developers, as well
as patent-attorneys and those who own software-related patents.

Software patents - are they just one big game of cat and mouse?

The IPKat says this is your opportunity to get your views on the subject
heard - make sure that you reserve your place by submitting this form before the deadline of 18 February if you want to take part.

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
