米国特許出願書類作成の為の基本書(旧タイトル:Landis on Mechanics of Patent Claim Drafting)として知られ、その定義・解釈は判例や判決文中にも度々引用される文献。判例や法規則、慣習、傾向等の分析を通じ、クレーム作成の際に見落し易い構造・文言上の盲点を明らかにし、最も有利な権利範囲を得る為のテクニックを詳解しています。
第7版では、新たな進展としてAlice v. CLS Bank International 事件最高裁判決(2014)等に言及しながら、特許適格性の範囲の明確化の動向を分析し、巻末資料にはUSPTOの特許事由適格性に対する暫定ガイダンスおよび抽象的アイディア事例集を新たに収録しています。

【主な内容】

□装置・機械・方法・プロセス・組成物・工業製品・デザイン・バイオに関する発明のクレーム作成を、モデルとなる事例を提示し、順序立てて詳解。

□各発明分類における、従属・独立・ジェプソン・マーカッシュ・製法限定・機能的、等の様々なクレーム記載例を、判例の最新解釈を交え解説。

□ビジネス方法のクレーム表記。

□CAFC等の司法による文言解釈:相対的表現、程度、範囲及び近似に関する表現、クレーム前提部、等。

□先行引例のない拒絶についての詳細な検討。

□公知発明における変更、数値的な範囲・量を伴うクレームの取扱、仕様書での代替的な発明要素・実施形態の公開。

□作成したクレームを自己審査し、より精度を高める為のアドバイス。

又、実務上役立つ以下の資料を収録しています。

◆関連法規則の抄録(USC, CFR)

◆特許審査手続便覧(MPEP)の抄録

◆用語集

◆USPTOの特許事由適格性に対する暫定ガイダンス(2014年12月16日)および抽象的アイディア事例集

◆PLI(法律実務協会)が提供するPatent Agent試験用の教材;33のクレーム記載例を基に、留意点やMPEPの参照箇所を附して解説。
