Title: Patent Law and Nanotechnology
Author: Woods, Eric
Abstract: From a researcher's perspective, understanding the elements that should be in a patent application and how the patent office evaluates prior art and patentability can be daunting. A basic introduction to the criteria that examiners utilize when evaluating a patent application will be presented, as well as ideas for writing a specification. Inventors have to disclose certain information that is relevant to the patent process, and the details of this requirement and its relationship to patentability will be discussed. An example will be provided from an issued patent in nanotechnology with a brief review of the application and a high-level view of the exchanges between the office and the holder of rights to the patent application.
