Claim construction is a major phase of a patent litigation where the meaning and scope of the claims themselves - the invention - is determined by the court. The outcome of this definition phase is crucial to the respective infringement and invalidity positions of the parties. The Thesaurus of Claim Construction directs practitioners to the cases in which claim terms have previously been construed, and further to the sources of the evidence used by past courts to construe the terms in dispute.

This two-volume Second Edition is updated to include over 3,500 additional entries, some of which focus on Biotechnology, Pharmacology, and Cleantech. Ordinary Skill is now included as a topic.

Review:

"It provides a very useful set of alternative constructions of words and phrases with citations from US patent cases and brief commentary...This two volume set also has insightful sections on means plus function elements, design patents and how to determine what 'ordinary skill' really means in the context of the patent you're looking at. With an index that runs to over 200 pages, it's also easy to find everything." --Duncan Bucknell, Think IP Strategy"An indispensable reference book for anyone who litigates patent cases." --Mark A. Lemley, William H. Neukom Professor, Stanford Law School "Claim language and claim construction are probably the most frequently debated legal issues in patent prosecution and patent litigation respectively. This book offers an invaluable resource and desk reference for parties to those debates." --Dennis Crouch, Associate Professor of Law, University of Missouri School of Law, Author of Patently "The Thesaurus of Claim Construction by Stuart Soffer and Robert Kahrl gives all stakeholders-lawyers, judges, patent owners, accused infringers and the public-a powerful tool to quickly access accepted definitions and point the way to useful references. Those who use it will save time and increase the odds of success in a patent litigation." --James Pooley Deputy Director General for Innovation and Technology World Intellectual Property Organization "The Thesaurus of Claim Construction will be of great service for both the courts and patent practitioners in determining how courts have defined specific terms, predicting how they may define new terms, as well as to simplify the complex and evolving claim construction process." --David Stephenson, LoTempio Law Blog "An indispensable reference book for anyone who litigates patent cases." --Mark A. Lemley, William H. Neukom Professor, Stanford Law School "Claim language and claim construction are probably the most frequently debated legal issues in patent prosecution and patent litigation respectively. This book offers an invaluable resource and desk reference for parties to those debates." --Dennis Crouch, Associate Professor of Law, University of Missouri School of Law, Author of Patently "People often compare patents to deeds, but the English language doesn't allow the boundaries of invention to be staked out so precisely. With almost every word in every claim open to dispute, claim interpretation can overwhelm the process. The Thesaurus of Claim Construction by Stuart Soffer and Robert Kahrl gives all stakeholders-lawyers, judges, patent owners, accused infringers and the public-a powerful tool to quickly access accepted definitions and point the way to useful references. Those who use it will save time and increase the odds of success in a patent litigation." --James Pooley Deputy Director General for Innovation and Technology World Intellectual Property Organization "I was both surprised and happy when Oxford Press sent me the completed 1,000 page volume. The book, co-authored by Robert Kahrl (author of Patent Claim Construction), includes over 7,000 claim terms that have been construed by courts over the past decade." --Patently-O Blog "They went through hundreds of cases, and pulled out all of the claim constructed terms, recasting them into an easy to read format...an excellent primer for those involved with litigation...a bargain for those facing claim construction, and wanting to get an understanding of how to define the claims in their case, or how others might try to define your terms. Any lawyer involved with a patent litigation case should read this book at least once." --Internet Patent N
