Annual Summit on Protecting Innovations in the Financial Services
Industry taking place July 24-25, 2019

group of IP counsel from financial organizations including American
Express, Mastercard, Capital One, Visa, Wells Fargo, CME Group,

“Given the recent announcement of the new guidelines on subject matter
eligibility by the USPTO, it is an opportune time for IP counsel to gain

technological advances while keeping pace with IP protection strategies
and guidelines.”
