Overview

Law of Chemical and Pharmaceutical Invention, Fourth Edition is the only resource that covers both patent and nonpatent protection for chemical and pharmaceutical inventions, including:

  • Fundamentals and Protection Eligibility
  • Utility Patent Claims
  • Design Patents
  • Eligibility of Genetic Engineering Inventions
  • Nonpatent Eligibility and Protection
  • Enforcement of Patent Rights
  • Infringement Defenses: Noninfringement, Invalidity, Unenforceability

This unique, comprehensive two-volume reference clarifies the concepts and processes surrounding both patent and nonpatent protection. It includes extensive use of diagrams of chemical structures to eliminate confusion. And it directly quotes case law to make necessary points and provide legal accuracy—rather than interpretation.

You’ll find full and clear explications on:

  • Patent basis and terms
  • Nonpatent protection
  • The exhaustion doctrine
  • Extension, infringement, remedies
  • And more!

Law of Chemical and Pharmaceutical Invention, Fourth Edition is invaluable for its analysis of patent and nonpatent protection alone. But it is also the only single resource to deliver guidance on all of these important topics:

  • Managing litigation expenses and obtaining reliable litigation insurance
  • Extending your patent life through the filing of provisional patent applications
  • Securing design patents to protect your brand
  • Understanding the exhaustion doctrine and its implications
  • Determining whether your patent is part of a standard-setting organization

Note: Online subscriptions are for three-month periods.
