News for Researchers

Posted December 7, 2020 by Alyssa Amen

NUtech Ventures is hosting a free noon webinar Dec. 17, “Claim Drafting Strategies for Stronger Patents.” It is open to all Nebraska researchers.

The webinar features Bill Woodford, an attorney at Fish & Richardson law firm. Woodford will discuss practical advice for writing patent claims, known as claim drafting. Attendees will learn how to accurately describe an invention and avoid pitfalls that can reduce the value of a patent. Woodford will discuss various audiences who evaluate patent claims, including the patent office, potential licensees, district court judges and juries. He will also discuss claims issues related to case law and what happens when claim language is misinterpreted.

This presentation is geared towards audiences who have a general understanding of intellectual property. For background information, researchers are invited to watch NUtech’s “Intro to Intellectual Property” webinar or visit the United States Patent and Trademark website.

Registration is required. A Zoom link will be emailed to participants the morning of the webinar.
