Overview

Written by an individual with experience as both a chemist and a patent attorney, The Chemist's Companion Guide to Patent Law covers everything the student or working chemist needs to know about patentability, explaining important concepts of patent law (such as novelty, non-obviousness, and freedom-to-operate) in easy-to-understand terms. Through abundant examples from case law as well as real-world situations with which a researcher might be faced, this book provides readers with a better understanding of how to put that knowledge into practice.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"For anyone involved in patents or the patenting process, this book will help clarify what must go on in every step, from musing over a problem in an office, through the laboratory work, the many steps involving patent agents and attorneys, through gaining and maintaining a viable patent." (Anal Bioanal Chem, 2011)

"The book is suitably encyclopaedic and covers a substantial fraction of the patent process. A compromise is struck between suitable content and use as a student referral aid and the book seems to get this exactly right." (Reviews, December 2010)“Authors Chris Miller and Mark Evans are practicing chemists as well as patent law enthusiasts, and their appreciation of both ends of the inventor–attorney axis makes them ideally placed to advise researchers.” (Nature Chemistry, January 2011)

"This well-priced, up-to-date publication is attractively printed and produced by the publisher. . . this book is especially recommended for chemists and other members of drug discovery teams, for graduate students, postdocs, for faculty members who have interests in drug discovery, for others who would like a one-volume review of U.S. patent law, and for the libraries that serve these groups". (TMCnet.com, November 2010)

(Journal of Medicinal Chemistry, 2010)"

The title is accurate; it's a top-to-bottom look at the major features of patent law as it applies to the business of chemistry....... There's a lot of good stuff in this book. It's not always light reading, but it's the most readable treatment of some very complex patent issues that I've seen." (In the Pipeline, September 13, 2010)
