This year's TC 3600 and TC 3700 Customer Partnership Meeting will focus on medical technology, gaming, transportation, and other mechanical-based topics.  As industries such as the medical and transportation sectors become increasingly more high tech, strategies for protecting IP are evolving rapidly. Hear from examiners, prosecutors, and industry leaders on interpreting computer-related claim limitations, the use of functional language, the role of means-plus-function limitations in the mechanical arts, and how to interpret and apply the newly revised Section 101 Guidance.
