About the Course:
You can't value what you can't read. Thus, you can't value a patent if you can't get a firm grasp of its anatomy.
This course provides an unbeatable primer on understanding the impact of the information conveyed on patents. Through a detailed case study in which a patent is thoroughly examined, Paul Rossler provides explanation and insight into dozens of aspects of patent anatomy and patent hygiene.
The following are among the parts of patent anatomy that are thoroughly dissected:
- Attorney's name
- Claims counts
- Class codes
- Date of issuance
- Drawings and drawing counts
- Examiner's name
- Inventors' names and places of residency
- Patent term adjustments
- Patent number
- Preferred embodiments
- Prior art references
- Title of invention
The following are among the issues discussed during this webinar:
- What do the letters--A, B, P, S--mean after patent numbers on the cover of patents?
- What are the risks of assuming that a patent's drawings accurately reflect its claims?
- What is the term for describing what claims begin with?
- What are preambles in claims always followed by?
- What are transitional phrases found in claims followed by?
- Where in a claim is a "proper antecedent basis" required?
- What happens to claim scope when claims include more added requirements?
- What does "means for" language mean?
- What should drawing elements be mapped to?
- What constitutes infringement in terms of claims analysis?
- How can a patent analyst audit the actual device (or proposed design) against claim requirements?
- How many claims do design patents invariably have?
- When reviewing a patent's prosecution history, which discoveries would be cause for concern?
