In an article published by Law360, Mintz Member Stephen J. Akerly commented on the legal landscape five years after the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Alice v. CLS Bank, which ruled that four patents directed to a computerized trading platform were invalid. As a result, hundreds of patents on software and other computer-related inventions have been invalidated, and it is difficult to obtain those kinds of patents in the first place.

“In five years, I’ve seen what I would consider one of the most dramatic effects of any decision or change in legislation as it relates to the patent system,” Mr. Akerly said.
Mintz corporate attorney Ben Stone discussed his career path and more on the podcast From the Dorm Room to the Board Room, which provides insights, tips and inspiration for college students and young professionals. The podcast is hosted by award-winning author and professor Andy Molinsky and is produced by Brandeis University’s International Business School. In addition, a short summary of Ben’s interview was published by Forbes.
