This program will address the standard for indefiniteness under 35 U.S.C. § 112, including an in-depth analysis of Nautilus, Inc. v. Biosig Instruments, Inc., 134 S. Ct. 2120 (2014) and its progeny. We will also review how the courts have treated indefiniteness issues post-Nautilus, particularly in the chemical and material arts. We will also discuss the level of granularity needed in describing test and measurement methods in new applications, and provide guidance in addressing potential issues in pending applications and issued patents, all in view of Nautilus.
