Optimizing Enforceable Patent Claim Scope, Minimizing Costs for Global Patent Portfolios
Protection Differences in Different Jurisdictions, Where and When of Claims Amendment, Cost Considerations
Recording of a 90-minute premium CLE video webinar with Q&A
This CLE course will guide patent counsel in drafting U.S.-origin patent applications to maximize prosecution opportunities outside the U.S. The panel will discuss optimizing enforceable claim scope while minimizing costs for the patent portfolio, focusing on “the big five” jurisdictions (U.S., EPO, Japan, China, and Korea). The panel will offer practical examples and approaches and will discuss the implications for enforceable claim scope.
- Scope of protection and enforcement
- Claims amendment
- Jurisdiction dependent
- Cost considerations
- Best practices
The panel will review these and other key issues:
- How the protection afforded by different claim types varies in different jurisdictions
- How many claims (category, scope, independent) are needed to ensure adequate protection
- Amending claims during enforcement proceedings and implications for dependent claim strategies
