How to Write a Specification That Satisfies the Requirements in Multiple Jurisdictions

Original air date: 10.6.21. 
This webinar is grounded in the overarching theoretical concept that a written description is intended to survive the expiration of the patent itself, such that a person of skill in the art can read the written description and implement the inventive concepts inside the written description in order to reap the underlying benefit of the invention. In this sense, an analogy can be drawn between a written description in a patent and an academic paper, both of which are intended to fill the same object, namely providing instructions to persons of skill in the art as to how to practice a given invention. The fact that each jurisdiction has developed specific rules—some of which may diverge across jurisdictions—creates stress for patent drafters. This webinar will attempt to reconcile some of those divergences by providing a synthesized framework for patent attorneys.
