An application originating in Europe frequently encounters substantial difficulties before the USPTO. Recurrently, claims issued to a European applicant are unnecessarily narrow by US standards or unexpectedly constrained by US principles of disavowal, disclaimerand estoppel. Claim amendments and patentability arguments that are highly effective for the EPO often prove entirely inadequate before US Patent Examiners and the PTAB.
This workshop addresses the parallel, but substantially different, rules for drafting and prosecuting patents required by the Examiners and Appeal Boards of the EPO and USPTO.
You will study the contrasting approaches of the EPO and USPTO and learn the experts’ techniques for drafting an application for, and responding to, rejections issued by the two offices.
