Specialty knowledge in patent law
Eric Moore is a fierce advocate for his clients’ intellectual property, whether liaising with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) or advising on patent litigation. He prepares and prosecutes patent applications for communications technologies, complex software and information technology, and electronics and semiconductor technologies.
After completing law school in 2015, Eric began his IP career by joining the USPTO as a patent examiner. During his tenure, he quickly earned a reputation for his outstanding work quality and high production rates.
Eric’s duties at the patent office included examining applications, performing extensive prior art searches, conducting applicant interviews, and preparing and issuing office actions. This experience would inspire him to develop his own ideas for advancing the economy through patents — ideas that have since become a reality. Today, Eric applies that knowledge to file patents on behalf of inventors worldwide, preparing each application with the diligence of an attorney and the scrutiny of an examiner.
Speaking the language of software developers
Eric has worked within the computer science discipline for more than a decade, first entering the field as a developer of military software. As a result, he possesses a deep understanding of computer-related technologies and now leverages his insight to support software companies in their efforts to improve the lives of millions. He often assists clients in identifying patentable subject matter through invention mining sessions, helping them translate ideas into viable applications.
At Patterson + Sheridan, Eric has drafted and prosecuted hundreds of patent applications related to complex computer technologies, including machine learning, virtual computing, user interfaces, and telecommunications. He has also extensively studied and devised effective strategies for avoiding and resolving “abstract idea” rejections under 35 U.S.C. § 101.
In addition to preparing patent applications and helping clients overcome patentability issues and rejections from the USPTO through strategic prosecution, Eric applies his legal skills and technical background to assisting in dispute resolution, including patent litigation.
Eric holds a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science from the University of Alabama in Huntsville and a J.D. from the Ave Maria School of Law. In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his wife and children, playing guitar, exploring technology, and studying philosophy.
