Seven Years After KSR v. Teleflex: The Test for Non-Obviousness & the Crown Jewel of Patentability

Monday, September 22, 2014 12:00 PM to 1:15 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA


Seven years have passed since the landmark Supreme Court decision of KSR v. Teleflex, which substantially changed the law of non-obviousness.  This presentation will explain the test for non-obviousness as it has been applied by the Federal Circuit in its leading decisions over the past seven years, how the test has been applied in major technological areas, and will demonstrate that the true test for non-obviousness can be explained by reference to a few basic principles that are set forth in KSR and exemplified in major Federal Circuit court decisions.
