Description

Patent Ethics: Prosecution serves as an essential guide to the ethical issues arising in the course of the patent prosecution process. By providing relevant rules and case law, it allows practitioners to identify ethical problems before they arise and to address them most effectively when they do. Patent Ethics: Prosecution is the first of two volumes on patent ethics-the second is on litigation-written by Professor David Hricik and Drinker Biddle partner Mercedes Meyer. This treatise is the first of its kind to combine the United State Patent and Trademark Office (PTO) rules with commentary by the authors, which distills the authors' own experience and expertise in patent prosecution into effective practice strategies.show more
