Free live Webinar on Computer Implemented Inventions (CII) in Latin America on Wednesday July 8th at 12;00 EDT.
Join Jose Santacroce, Head of Moeller’s Patent Department, and Mariano Municoy, Head of our Legal Department in this live webinar where they will analyze the most important issues when filing, prosecuting and enforcing patents protecting CII in Latin America, particularly in Argentina, Brazil and Mexico
Mr. Santacroce retired as Director at the European Patent Office in the field of Computers (Human-Computer Interaction) after working there for 30 years and since early 2018 has led Moeller Patent Department.
Mr. Municoy has 20 years of legal experience and teaches regularly IP courses both in the US at Chicago-Kent as well as in Argentina at Austral and San Andres Universities.
Even though in absolute terms the number of CII patent applications in Latin America is still very low when compared to those of developed countries/regions, relatively speaking they have been growing faster than applications in other fields of technology, which very likely will accelerate in the near future as we all adapt to the new ways of living and working in an-after-COVID 19-world
During the webinar, they will present both a general picture and some particular insights about the best ways to achieve the optimal legal patent protection for CII inventions in Latin America.

This will be a live webinar where they will analyze the most important issues when filing, prosecuting and enforcing Computer-Implemented Inventions (CII) in Latin America. Particularly in Argentina, Brazil, and Mexico.
Even though in absolute terms the number of CII patent applications in Latin America is still very low when compared to those of developed countries/regions. Relatively speaking they have been growing faster than applications in other fields of technology. Fact that is also expanding the non-very distant almost non-existing caselaw
However, there are many serious challenges to obtain legal protection which start at the time of filing and prosecuting such as navigating. For example the exclusions from patentability, establishing the technical character /contribution of the invention as well as assessing the presence of inventive step.
During the webinar, we will present both a general picture and some particular administrative and judicial cases. That way you can get the knowledge about the best ways to achieve the best possible legal protection of CII inventions in Latin America.
