9781402424267: Faber on Mechanics of Patent Claim Drafting (Intellectual Property Law Library)

More patent applications are rejected because of claim drafting flaws than because of problems with inventions. A trusted working tool for more than two decades, Faber on Mechanics of Patent Claim Drafting spotlights proven claim drafting practices and techniques that have been firmly established by patent authorities and custom. This lucid, time-saving handbook offers you:

  • Start-to-finish directions for each type of claim — apparatus or machine, method or process, composition of matter, article of manufacture, and biotechnology.
  • Extensive discussion of nonart rejections, classic and more recent constructions of means clauses, inherent function of the apparatus doctrine, mental steps and computer programs, product-by-process claims, and claims referring to drawings.
  • Quotations from litigated claims to help you see which types of limitations and phrases have (and have not) been “judicially approved.”
  • Real-world examples of dependent claims, Jepson claims, generic and species claims, subcombination claims, and biotechnology.
  • Numerous tips on how to avoid common claim drafting mistakes.
  • Definitions and preferred usage of stylized words and phrases in patent law, such as “comprising,” “consisting,” “means for,” “step for,” and “whereby.”
  • Guidance on how to review claims to eliminate errors and superfluous language.

Faber on Mechanics of Patent Claim Drafting examines:

  • Ways of avoiding transition words that can cause unnecessary claim interpretation problems.
  • Claim terms that are incapable of interpretation and can render claims indefinite and invalid.
  • Problematic alternative expressions.
  • Practical issues involved in amending filed claims, claiming numerical ranges and amounts, and disclosing in a specification several alternatives of elements or embodiments of the invention.

Faber on Mechanics of Patent Claim Drafting provides full coverage of U.S. Supreme Court and other court decisions critical to claim drafting. It is an indispensable guide for patent specialists and other intellectual property attorneys, corporate counsel, and non-specialists who represent inventors, patent officials, and inventors.
”Bob Faber is the guru in the claim drafting area.”
