Bradley C. Wright serves as Editor-in-Chief of the 2011 supplement to Drafting Patents for Litigation and Licensing

August 1, 2011

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

The 2011 Cumulative Supplement to Drafting Patents for Litigation and Licensing provides updated guidance on drafting patents and offers analysis of the latest cases, including:
  • Bilski v. Kappos and its progeny, that clarified the patentability of business method inventions
  • Board of Trustees of Leland Stanford Junior University v. Roche Molecular Systems, in which the U.S. Supreme Court emphasized the need for properly drafted invention agreements
  • Cancer Research Technology Ltd. v. Barr Laboratories, which required a showing of prejudice to establish prosecution latches
  • Ariad Pharmaceutical v. Eli Lilly, in which the en banc Federal Circuit firmly established that the written description and the enablement requirements are distinct and separate
  • In re Deutsche Bank, which clarified the scope of patent prosecution bars for those involved in litigation
