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. WHIPgroup attorneys argued that the rejection was improper because the invention integrates both a practical application and a particular machine (programmed computer). The Office was persuaded and allowed the claims. The patent is expected to issue in due course.
