An essential resource for every patent practitioner, the Federal Circuit Yearbook: Patent Law Developments in the Federal Circuit is the easy, effective, and economical way for you to keep pace with all patent decisions published by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit during the past year.
 
In each edition, the Yearbook’s concise yet comprehensive case synopses zero in on the prime issues, providing you with an expert account of the facts and law of the key rulings in the field. Covering everything from utility to claim construction, nonobviousness to infringement, and inequitable conduct to inventorship, the Yearbook brings you readily accessible summaries packed with authoritative commentary on the CAFC’s legal analyses and its current thinking on pivotal patent concerns. The Yearbook keeps you informed while keeping scientific and legal terminology to a minimum, explaining issues in a way that provides you with the practical legal support you need.
 
Revised annually, PLI’s Federal Circuit Yearbook is must reading for patent attorneys and other intellectual property practitioners, as well as a useful reference for corporate attorneys and inventors.
