The 28th Annual Silicon Valley Association of General Counsel (SVAGC) All Hands Meeting to be held November 16-17 at the Santa Clara Convention Center is a unique event, longstanding tradition of in-house legal departments at technology and life science companies, and a “Who’s Who” of outside counsel serving this special community. Richard Hung & Bita Rahebi will participate in the “Advanced IP” session.

In the two years since the U.S. Supreme Court decided Alice v. CLS Bank, there has been an ebb and flow of patents successfully resisting Section 101 challenges. After an initial surge in Section 101 rejection rates and district court invalidations based on Alice, there are signs that the trend may be reversing, both in the courts and at the USPTO. This discussion will examine these trends, and suggest how companies can adjust their strategies to "go with the flow."
