Event Details:

The patentability requirements for Computer Related Inventions (CRIs) under Indian Patent Law have been unclear. It is generally understood that a CRI must demonstrate “technical effect” and the relevant claims must have “machine limitation”, in addition to the basic patentability requirements of novelty, inventive step, and industrial applicability.

However, the phrase “technical effect” has not been defined properly. Further, the legal basis for technical effect requirement has not been clarified.The guidelines for examination of CRIs published recently by the Indian Patent Office is an important step towards making the requirements clearer.

Take Aways:

  • Understand the Evolution of patent law with reference protection of CRIs
  • Knowing the \”technical effect\” requirement and discuss the legal basis for the requirement
  • Understand patentability of CRIs in India through examples
