This session is aimed at the non-attorney patent professional who needs to know about some of the most important parts of US patent law. Coverage will include most of the sections of the law that deal with patent searching and will also include interpretations of case law relevant to these sections. Search requesters rely on not only the thoroughness of the search, but also the that the searcher is cognizant of both general intentions and specific nuances of patent law. Coverage will involve mostly US law, but comparisons will be made to other jurisdictions. The importance of timelines (filing and priority dates, and deadlines) will also be detailed.
