United States patent law, like the European Patent Convention (EPC), is based on a hierarchical code of statutes, regulations and administrative guidelines. However, there are numerous important distinctions, knowledge of which is crucial to successfully protect and leverage intellectual property in the United States. In this highly practical, one-of-a-kind book, European patent professionals will find, detail by detail, exactly what is required at every stage of a patent proceedings in the United States. Using a directly comparative presentation, the coverage includes such details of patent law and procedure as the following: drafting applications and filing them at the US Patent Office; provisions of the America Invents Act of 2011; possible responses to a Final Office Action; US definitions of novelty and inventiveness; types of patents recognized in the United States; structure of the US Patent Office and the US court system; variations in the definitions of basic patentability criteria; types of US post-grant proceedings and third-party submissions; appeal proceedings at the US Patent and Trademark Office; inventor's oath; foreign filing license; cost and time periods for various procedural acts; the work of US patent attorneys, agents and examiners; uses of the US Manual of Patent Examination Procedure (MPEP); and the US provisional application procedure. Every step in the process is described and directly compared as it operates under both the EPC and US patent law. There is no other available source of such instantly accessible information for European patent lawyers, in-house counsel, or EPC or national patent office officials, to all of whom this book will be of immeasurable value and usefulness. Intellectual property law academics and students will also benefit from the book's rigorous comparative approach."

It explains the current national legal practices in Europe, describing the legal and factual issues and the different approaches to achieve unification.

Jochen Pagenberg, LL.M. Harvard, President EPLAW, Germany and Thomas Schachl, LL.M., Attorney-at-law, Germany In his detailed study, Stefan Luginbuehl critically examines the latest efforts to establish a common European and EU patent litigation system and suggests possible alternatives to such a system. Due to the lack of a European patent court, both the EPO and national judges interpret European patents and European patent law. This results in diverging interpretation across Europe and costly litigation for patent holders. Stefan Luginbuehl s proposals to promote the goal of a uniform interpretation of patent law and ease the difficulties are timely and highly insightful. Dealing with important legal and political issues related to European patent litigation and the establishment of a common patent litigation system, this book will appeal to practitioners, patent litigators, patent attorneys and judges specialised in patent litigation. Academics teaching and learning IP (patent law), private international law, or international civil procedure, will find this study interesting as the book deals with important aspects of national and international patent litigation, as well as procedural and structural questions related to the establishment of a patent court for Europe.

Advances in modern biotechnology have produced profound and far-reaching implications for the relationship between humans, animals and the environment. This book examines the role of moral considerations in the patent system as a form of regulation. It questions why in the context of biotechnological inventions morality has become an important issue.
