The source judges use to review patent issues
Patent Law and Practice was first published by the Federal Judicial Center in 1988 as a one-volume introduction to patent law for federal judges. Since that time, the judiciary has come to rely on this reference for up-to-date information on patent law as it has evolved in response to the courts, Congress, and changes in practice at the Patent and Trademark Office (PTO). Patent Law and Practice has been cited by courts more than 100 times since its initial publication, most notably in the Supreme Court decision, Markman v. Westview Instruments.
Now, with the all-new Seventh Edition, the authors provide the latest analysis of the most recent case law and new legislation, including the Leahy-Smith America Invents Act, enacted into law on September 16, 2011. This law encompasses sweeping changes to the U.S. patent code, including a move to the “first-inventor-to-file” priority system and new options for testing the validity of an issued patent. The handbook also has been updated with discussion of the most important patent law decisions from the past three years, including:
The Seventh Edition covers these decisions, as well as the Federal Circuit’s continued evolution of the law relating to claim construction, invalidity for anticipation and obviousness, the statutory disclosure and claiming requirements, indirect infringement, and the availability of injunctive relief for patent infringement.
