AN INNOVATIVE TREATISE on tactical and strategic patent decisions for today’s patent professionals.
This comprehensive treatise provides a self-contained, single-volume desk reference and guide to tactical and strategic patenting decisions for patent professionals after the most comprehensive revision to U.S. patent law since 1952, the America Invents Act (AIA). The AIA fundamentally altered U.S. patent law by transitioning from a “First-to-Invent” to a “First-Inventor-to-File” patent system. The pragmatic style of Patents After the AIA: Evolving Law and Practice provides insights and advice for patent application preparation and filing, post-issuance review and challenges to patentability, and ongoing international patent law harmonization. It also provides historical and legislative discussions and practical foundational discourses.
Patents After the AIA: Evolving Law and Practice includes the following unique content:
Thousands of footnotes provide support for the treatise and serve as easy references for the reader to find the source materials discussed, including U.S. patent-related statutes, legislation, case law, and U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) practice guidance (e.g., guidelines, regulations, and policies), giving the patent professional direct reference to the statutory, judicial, regulatory, and policy standards relevant to the issues that patent professionals encounter on a day-to-day basis. Key documents are provided in an online appendix.
Each chapter includes descriptive titles and headings reflecting information content. This organization helps readers readily access specific topics within a chapter. Extensive cross-references are provided to related sections of the treatise that provide greater depth of discussion
