Software: To Patent or Not To?

Would you like to learn more about software subject matter patentability?  Join us on Thursday, November 8 at the Westin Waltham to receive guidance on whether to seek patent protection for different types of software, such as the application of a mathematical algorithm or a business method.  Recent litigation, such as Apple Inc. v.
