Claim Construction Showdown set for February 8, 2005.

[Link] The en banc rehearing of Phillips v. AWH is scheduled for Tuesday, February 8, 2005 at 10:00 a.m. in Washington DC.  It is expected that the outcome of this case will help define the mechanics and legal basis for patent claim construction.

[Link] More information on the case, and a review of the briefs filed can be found here.  I reviewed the major arguments common to the various briefs in the December 2004/January 2005 edition of PatentWORLD magazine (Issue 168).
