Shortlisted for the 2008 Young Authors Inner Temple Book Prize This
new book provides a comprehensive overview of the topic of patent
claim interpretation in the UK and in three other select
jurisdictions. It explores territory that has great commercial
significance and yet is severely under-explored in existing works.
The twin issues of the function of patent law and interpretational
analysis of the scope of protection have been recently reconsidered
by the House of Lords, and this work not only reviews their recent
cases but also looks at how the US, German and Japanese patent
systems deal with the complex problems presented in this area. The
book provides a balanced approach between practical, academic and
theoretical approaches to claim interpretation. In doing so it
provides more than a simple case analysis, as it enables the reader
to consider the shape that the law should take rather than simply
recounting the current position. Its novelty therefore lies in
bringing the theoretical elements of the discussion together with
the view of the profession charged with creating the patent
documentation in the first place and then viewing this in the light
of the detailed comparative studies. It is only by considering all
of these elements that we begin to see a pathway for the
development of the law in this area. This is a work that will be an
important source of reference for academics and practitioners
working in the field of patent law.
