This book provides a six-step blueprint for drafting all sections of a patent application. The courts have been judging the quality of patents for two hundred years but without specific direction as to the content and interrelationship of the various sections of a patent. It is universally agreed that every patent should Recognize a new result (“non-obviousness” in the U.S., “inventive step” in the European Union); but, as case histories show, many patents fail in the Presentation of that new result throughout the patent. An analysis of court opinions Correlated with the content of the intrinsic litigated patent produces New Result Guidelines for Recognizing and Presenting the new result in a patent by adhering to Six Steps in preparing the original patent application. The author spent fifty five years in patent prosecution and teaching to integrate commercial requisites with legal precedent in the preparation of a patent. This book includes numerous examples and explanations of litigated patents and lessons learned on how litigation could have been avoided by following the six-step blueprint for a consistent presentation of a new result. The six-step blueprint for drafting patent applications has been time and deed tested in efficiency (highly productive law firm associates) and in quality (litigated six-step patents). It has been used by the author and by others for training law firm associates and in courses at several universities and law schools including the University of Notre Dame.
