Birmingham, Michigan (PRWEB) March 30, 2012
Hansen IP Law PLLC announced that firm owner Steve Hansen will present a webinar concerning the Yahoo! v. Facebook patent infringement case on April 5, 2012 for NALS, the association for legal professionals. The webinar will take place at 9 pm Eastern and is available for both members and non-members of NALS. For registration information, click here.
“Many patent cases go unnoticed by the public unless and until they affect people’s everyday lives,” said Mr. Hansen. “With the massive popularity of Facebook and the company’s impending IPO, this is a case people will be watching. Also, Yahoo’s patents concern computerized implementations of business methods, which have been the focus of recent case law developments concerning what constitutes “statutory subject matter” under the Patent Statute. ‘Statutory subject matter’ refers to the type of thing that can be patented, regardless of whether it is new. In the webinar, we will discuss how Facebook may be able to use the evolving law in this area to invalidate Yahoo’s patents,” Mr. Hansen said.
The webinar will expand on a Business of Patents blog post, which can be accessed by clicking here.
The Yahoo case is Yahoo! Inc. v. Facebook, Inc., Case No. CV12-01212 (Northern District of California).
