The seminar will present recent U.S. court cases and examples relating to the claim interpretation. In light of these decisions, the speakers will provide guidance to draft, prosecute, and litigate applications in the U.S. in order to better secure the intended scope of the protection.
The cases and examples presented in the seminar will illustrate how the courts interpret claims based on the intrinsic evidence (the specification and claims) rather than the extrinsic evidence (dictionaries or experts). Practitioners must carefully draft the specification in order to give the claimed terms their intended meaning. For legal opinions, negotiations, and litigation purposes a careful review of the intrinsic evidence is necessary in order to properly interpret claims. The seminar will also discuss how claim interpretation can affect the determination of patent eligibility.
