CyNam Patent Workshop


Albright LLP hosted an interesting and informative workshop on patenting software at their premises on 2 November. Those attending commented on how useful and valuable it was and also how much it had alerted them to the fact that it is a very real and sometime ambiguous issue that requires clarifying when applied to anything technical. Albright, in the capable hands of patent attorney, Freddie Noble, were able to do this explaining in clear and simple terms the issues that arise when designing and inventing software.  

Our thanks to Albright for hosting and for making the event such a success.
