    in Laurel, Maryland

Abstract: Writing and Filing US Patents - From a
Software Perspective

    The focus of this presentation is on applying for US Patents, particularly
    as it pertains to software applications. Whether or not you ever plan to
    file for a patent, understanding software patents is important to
    successfully utilize ideas that have been patented. Knowledge of the
    rights of a patent holder and how to use the patented ideas appropriately
    can benefit your work as a software engineer. Some of the areas
    addressed by this presentation include:

        1) What is a US patent?
        2) Why file a patent?
        3) Who can file a patent?
        4) What is patentable?
        5) How much does it cost?
        6) How do you write a US patent?
        7) Rough patent draft
        8) Research the existing market
        9) Components of a US patent application
        10) Claims
        11) References

    Although the presentation is focused on software patents, the concept is
    broad and can address needs to include every-day "useful"
    ideas/patents, that folks think about, to include those ideas to improve
    things around the home or office.

Presenter:

    Lester Sussman is the CEO and Founder of ceBerg, Inc. He has 20
    years experience in the design and development of complex information
    systems. He graduated as an Electronic and Electrical Engineer from the
    University of Cape Town, South Africa in 1983. Mr. Sussman worked
    for a number of companies in the greater Washington D.C. area
    including MCI Telecommunications, PRC and INTELSAT. At MCI,
    Mr. Sussman was one of the principal systems architects in the design
    and development of MCI's next generation network management
    system, which remains in critical use today. In 1994, Mr. Sussman
    joined INTELSAT as a senior systems engineer. Upon joining, he
    identified the potential value of the Internet for INTELSAT's business.
    He helped securely connect the organization to the Internet, conducted
    seminars throughout INTELSAT on its benefits, and lobbied
    INTELSAT 's management to market Internet connectivity via satellite.
    Mr. Sussman's efforts culminated in the launch of INTELSAT's
    Internet connectivity product, at a summit meeting attended by the more
    than 140 global telecommunications providers that owned the
    organization. Mr. Sussman was instrumental in acquiring one of the
    Summit's keynote speakers, Dr John Gage, Chief Researcher at Sun
    Microsystems.

    Mr. Sussman is well qualified to present on software patents. He
    currently holds four sole US patents, has an additional six pending
    patent applications and is researching a further two patents. He has
    licensed one of the patents for upfront fees to companies such as Sharp
    and Casio. For the past couple of years he has been working on
    launching a high-tech start-up anchored on his fourth patent -
    embedding multi-media Yellow Pages directly into a phone. His
