On Tuesday 25 October 2016, Steve Gledhill and Joe Seisdedos will present a webinar detailing their experiences with prosecuting Australian patent applications following the tumultuous changes in practice following the High Court’s decision in D’Arcy v Myriad Genetics Inc. and the Full Federal Court’s decision in Commissioner of Patents v RPL Central Pty Ltd.
Steve will discuss the development of the Patent Office’s practice following Myriad and will suggest that meaningful patent protection for biotech researchers can still be obtained in Australia. Joe will discuss the development of the Patent Office’s practice following RPL Central and will suggest that patent protection is still available for a wide class of software and computer enabled inventions in Australia.
