"This book is a valuable resource for experienced patent lawyers and beginners alike interested in all aspects of patent opinions." -Paul E. Krieger, Partner, Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP Adjunct Professor, University of Houston College of Law "David Fox has authored a most useful and thorough resource for those seeking to know more about U.S. patent opinions and evaluations. Non-attorney businesspersons and seasoned patent practitioners alike will find this book worthwhile. With stand-alone chapters having helpful practice points and sample opinions, it both edifies and clarifies the law and practice of patent evaluations." -Patrick Turley, JD, PhD Associate General Counsel, Baylor College of Medicine "David Fox's valuable and comprehensive book will enable non-U.S. patent professionals-such as European Patent Attorneys-to better understand the critical subject of U.S. patent opinions and evaluations." -John Hedenstr m, Senior Patent Counsel European Patent Attorney, McNeil AB "David Fox's book is an extremely valuable resource for any investment professional who deals with intellectual property, and will help to avoid hours or days of wasted effort in the investment screening process. It should be part of any investment professional's reference library." -Shannon W. McAdams, CFA Director, Galway Group "Unlike many US publications which, one accepts are written specifically for the large and vibrant domestic US market, this one is so accessible to the non-US reader that one wonders if it wasn't written with the non-dom market in mind. Its charms are not confined to the regular text either: helpful Appendices give sample outlines of non-infringement and invalidity opinions, whether alone or combined with one another. Other topics covered and which the non-US reader must take care to appreciate include that graveyard of many a good intention, the waiver of attorney-client privilege." -
