While much attention in recent years has been placed on patent eligibility – and rightly so – the truth is, obviousness remains the most important threshold for most innovations. Obviousness today is about predictability of results.

Listen as Gene Quinn, founder and president of IPWatchdog.com, John White, patent attorney and procedure expert and Megan McLoughlin, patent attorney and product director for LexisNexis PatentAdvisor® discuss responding to obviousness rejections and convincing examiners there is more to the claimed invention than the sum of its parts.

What you’ll learn in this webinar:

  • Specific requirements examiners must satisfy in order to rely on each of the KSR rationales
  • The most common obviousness rejections and how to handle them
  • Tips for successfully working with patent examiners and convincing them to issue patent claims
