WHIPgroup attorneys were successful in overcoming § 101 rejections for a patent application directed to an Intellectual Property (IP) system. The invention relates to an automated network-based system that replicates IP applications between jurisdictions for preparing and filing those applications. An Office Action rejected all claims for not reciting patentable subject matter.
