Drafting Patents for Litigation and LicensingThe first book to help patent practitioners draft the broadest possible patent that can sustain a validity challenge by synthesizing and applying lessons from the case law.

You’ll discover in-depth discussions on pitfalls in claim drafting; dangers of means-plus function clauses in claims; strategies to target direct infringers; recent trends regarding the scope of enablement; instructions on how to “Festo-Proof” a patent application; pitfalls with provisional patent applications; strategies for continued prosecution of patents; statutory subject matter problems affecting software, business method and biotechnology patents; creative claim drafting to avoid common problems in chemical and pharmaceutical patents; and strategies for maximizing design patent protection.

The Second Edition has been extensively revised to address passage of the Leahy-Smith America Invents Act (AIA), including supplemental examination of patents under AIA.

The 2016 Cumulative Supplement includes discussion of: 

  • The U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in Cuozzo Speed Technologies, LLC v. Lee upholding the PTAB’s claim construction standard
  • The Federal Circuit’s en banc decision on direct infringement on remand in Akamai Technologies Inc. v. Limelight Networks, Inc.
