Now, more than ever, it is imperative to ensure that you are obtaining the highest-quality patents in the most efficient manner. The days of using gut instinct to drive patent prosecution decision-making are long gone. To compete in today’s world, you need accurate, reliable data that provides valuable insight to help manage expectations and drive strategy throughout the prosecution process. Current trends in patent prosecution depend on patent analytics.
The webinar focused on trends in patent prosecution and patent eligibility (35 U.S.C. 101) and claim language (35 U.S.C. 112). With examples from both the life sciences and high-tech sectors, and using LexisNexis PatentAdvisor®, the panel walked through amendments made during prosecution and through allowance, looking at language added to overcome examiner rejections. They also discussed claiming strategies, drafting strategies, and an uptick in 112(a) and (b) rejections, and what this means for prosecution budgets and strategies for streamlining prosecution in light of current trends.
