Our Book Reviewed

The book I’ve co-authored with Mercedes Meyer has been reviewed in JPTOS by the editor in chief.  Here’s a snippet:

Patent Ethics: Prosecution is a comprehensive meditation on the complicated world of prosecution ethics. The book is illustrated with real world examples and includes substantial discussion of the varying case law on the many ethical dilemmas faced by patent practitioners. While the case law is often murky, the Authors’ analysis is clear and straightforward. It is an excellent reference on a matter that few practitioners truly understand.

    I saw the JPTOS. $299 is a bit pricey. Might be worth it, if it saves allegations of inequitable conduct in litigation, of course. However, in my experience, in the past, the allegation was automatic. Maybe less so now that attorney’s fees are being awarded more freely.

    I know about only one 18 U.S.C. 1001 OED case. Did you cover it?

    The major problem in prosecution is “burying the examiner.” There seems to be no safe choice but to include the kitchen sink without comment. Trying to help the Examiner by highlighting the most pertinent prior art is risky because of inadvertent omissions. What if the Examiner thinks a reference is analogous when the prosecutor was convinced it was not? Etc.

    If you solved this problem, I might spring for the book.
