Emory Law Professor Selected To Present Views On Internet Patents
Can a patent be issued that would cover an entire method of doing business? Margo Bagley, an assistant professor at Emory University School of Law, has been selected to answer that question by the law firm of Lyon & Lyon and the software company Oracle, which solicited publishable papers on "E-Commerce and E-Quivalence: Defining the Proper Scope of Internet Patents."
Bagley is one of three faculty chosen to receive a grant to write and present a paper at a national symposium in October at George Washington University on "Defining the Scope of Internet Patents." Judge Paul Michel of the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, which handles all appeals of patent cases, will be keynote speaker at the event.
A 1996 graduate of Emory Law School, Bagley also was a Woodruff Scholar during her student days. She practiced law with the Atlanta firms of Finnegan, Henderson, Farabow, Garrett & Dunner LLP, and Smith, Gambrell Russell LLP before joining the Emory faculty last fall, where she teaches courses in contracts and patent law. Prior to entering law school, Bagley served as a research engineer for Procter & Gamble and as a market research analyst with the Coca-Cola Company.
