More patent applications are rejected because of claim-drafting flaws than because of problems with inventions.
A trusted working tool for more than two decades, PLI’s Faber on Mechanics of Patent Claim Drafting gives you the clear and complete guidance you need to draft foolproof claims for any type of invention.
Faber on Mechanics of Patent Claim Drafting spotlights proven claim-drafting practices and techniques that have been firmly established by patent authorities and custom. This lucid, timesaving handbook offers you start-to-finish directions on how to craft claims for different types of inventions; real-world examples of effective claim drafting; insight into the accepted words and phrases you should use in specific drafting situations; instruction on how to describe structures in the drawings; and numerous tips on how to avoid common claim-drafting mistakes. Included are helpful glossaries of patent terms and the mechanical terms used in drawings.
Updated at least annually, Faber on Mechanics of Patent Claim Drafting is an indispensable guide for patent specialists and other intellectual property attorneys, corporate counsel, non-specialists who represent inventors, patent officials, and inventors.
