Computer Technology and Software
In the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision in Alice Corp. Pty. Ltd. v. CLS Bank Int’l, computer-implemented inventions have been on unsteady ground. Haley Guiliano is on the forefront of the implications of Alice and the future of computer-implemented inventions. Many of Haley Guiliano’s clients are in the business of software and other computer-related fields. We help them navigate the ever-changing legal landscape surrounding issues related to technologies in these industries both in the U.S. and abroad.
We often have conversations with clients deciding whether to seek patent protection for computer-implemented innovations. We have found that many people have been misinformed about the patentability standards for such inventions. Some believe that software and computer-implemented inventions, whether in the FinTech space or otherwise, are not patent eligible. This is, for the most part, not true and we make it a point to educate clients so that they are able to understand what the actual standards are and how to best go about protecting their innovations with patents.
