The art and skill in patent claim drafting is undeniably difficult to master. It is, however, essential to understand and appreciate, as a poorly written patent application can lead to an unwanted outcome from the USPTO. The claims of a patent form a protective boundary line around your patent that lets others know when they are infringing on your rights. The limits of this line are defined by the words and phrasing of your claims.
At our June 5th meeting, we have invited four of our IAA members to share their patent claims and discuss the unique features of their claims which lead to a fully issued patent. Alex Hobson, Patent Agent and IAA Board Member, will highlight relevant patent details with each product which were essential in achieving success.
