  • On September 23, 2010, the Patent and Trademark Office (PTO or the “Office”) hosted its annual Business Method Partnership Meeting at the Office’s headquarters in Alexandria, Virginia. Relative to prior years, the PTO scheduled this year’s Partnership Meeting later in the year in anticipation of the Supreme Court’s decision in Bilski v. Kappos. And as expected, the Bilski decision and the topic of statutory subject matter dominated the meeting.
