Faber on Mechanics of Patent Claim Drafting– what?

Hi guys,

There have been a bunch of you calling in with some variation of the question “What is this book? Why is it here?”

Worry no longer!


Faber has actually been writing the majority of the book for a while, so from here on out his name will be the one on the cover. Landis will no longer be updated, because, well, it no longer exists. Except as Faber.
