On June 11, 2014 Awapatent hosted a seminar about software patenting in the US. The seminar was arranged by Danish-American Business Forum (DABF). US patent Attorney Eric S. Barr from Sughrue Mion PLLC was invited to give a talk about recent developments within this field. Eric gave a very informative and inspiring talk where he among other things provided valuable information about the two US Supreme Court Decisions: Limelight v. Akamai and Nautilus v. Biosig both of which have been decided within the last two weeks.

I provided a talk about patentability of software in Europe with a focus on the difference between EP and US practice. The seminar was concluded by a very interesting case presented by Peter Wilmar Christensen. Peter is GM for Europe and Co-founder of Greenwave systems. Peter talked about the value software patents provides for Greenwave systems and also shared the experiences he has obtained from in his earlier career. There were a lot of questions and a good atmosphere.

Some video presentations from the seminar have been made available here.
