“[How to Write a Patent Application is] highly recommended.”
—National Council of Intellectual Property Law Association Newsletter
”[How to Write a Patent Application is] one of the most thorough treatments of the subject.”
—The Licensing Journal
Stocked with drafting checklists and sample drafting language, documents and drawings, PLI’s new Second Edition of How to Write a Patent Application helps you to get all the information from an inventor that is needed to prepare a solid patent application · claim an invention with sufficient breadth · claim an invention so that those elements that render the invention “nonobvious” are clearly set forth in the claims · and claim an invention so that the PTO will issue a patent and its validity will be sustained by the courts.
The new Second Edition discusses the Federal Circuit’s In re Bilski, which provides its latest test for patentable subject matter of a process, and suggests how to satisfy the Bilski test · the courts’ application of the “ordinary observer” test in cases involving infringement of a design patent · and biotechnology inventions, with the focus on the steps involved in satisfying the written description requirement for a claimed genus.
Updated at least once a year, the Second Edition of How to Write a Patent Application is a crucial, hands-on resource for patent lawyers and for other intellectual property attorneys and a useful basic reference for general practitioners.
