Patent Law: A Practitioner’s Guide

Release #12 is now available for Patent Law: A Practitioner’s Guide.

Securing patents for inventors and helping to protect their patent rights over the long term requires that an attorney gain a solid understanding of patent law fundamentals.

This treatise helps you achieve such mastery. Widely appreciated by attorneys and inventors for its clear, uncomplicated approach to a complex field, Patent Law gives you a solid working knowledge of the legal framework governing patents, including federal regulations and court decisions; the widely accepted four-step test used by the courts used to determine an invention’s patentability; the various tests used to indicate direct infringement and other patent violations; and drafting techniques used to prepare the full variety of documents, including specifications and claims.

This title features numerous timesaving sample forms; flowcharts, diagrams and tables that quickly enhance your understanding of key patent law issues; and hypothetical questions (with answers) that help prepare you for the real-world challenges of patent prosecution.
