Review Quotes
"For anyone involved in patents or the patenting process, this book will help clarify what must go on in every step, from musing over a problem in an office, through the laboratory work, the many steps involving patent agents and attorneys, through gaining and maintaining a viable patent." (Anal Bioanal Chem, 2011) "The book is suitably encyclopaedic and covers a substantial fraction of the patent process. A compromise is struck between suitable content and use as a student referral aid and the book seems to get this exactly right." ( Review s, December 2010)"Authors Chris Miller and Mark Evans are practicing chemists as well as patent law enthusiasts, and their appreciation of both ends of the inventor-attorney axis makes them ideally placed to advise researchers." ( Nature Chemistry , January 2011) "This well-priced, up-to-date publication is attractively printed and produced by the publisher. . . this book is especially recommended for chemists and other members of drug discovery teams, for graduate students, postdocs, for faculty members who have interests in drug discovery, for others who would like a one-volume review of U.S. patent law, and for the libraries that serve these groups". ( TMCnet.com , November 2010) "This well-priced, up-to-date publication is attractively printed and produced by the publisher. . . .this book is especially recommended for chemists and other members of drug discovery teams, for graduate students, postdocs, for faculty members who have interests in drug discovery, for others who would like a one-volume review of U.S. patent law, and for the libraries that serve these groups".

( Journal ofMedicinal Chemistry , 2010)" The title is accurate; it's a top-to-bottom look at the major features of patent law as it applies to the business of chemistry....... There's a lot of good stuff in this book. It's not always light reading, but it's the most readable treatment of some very complex patent issues that I've seen."

Summaries
Main Description
Written by an individual with experience as both a chemist and a patent attorney, What Every Chemist Needs to Know About Patent Law: A Case-Based Approach covers everything the student or working chemist needs to know about patentability, explaining important concepts of patent law (such as novelty, non-obviousness, and freedom-to-operate) in easy-to-understand terms. Through abundant examples from case law as well as real-world situations with which a researcher might be faced, this book provides readers with a better understanding of how to put that knowledge into practice.
Back Cover Copy
Everything a working chemist needs to know about patents-in easy-to-understand terms For people working in the chemical, pharmaceutical, and biotechnology industries, understanding patents is vitally important when it comes to safeguarding their intellectual property. Unfortunately, most researchers involved in testing and evaluating novel chemicals have a limited knowledge of laws that pertain directly to their work. This thorough, accessible reference fills this critical educational gap by delivering relevant legal concepts in a clear, concise manner free of specialized jargon. The Chemist's Companion Guide to Patent Law breaks down the most salient patent information by providing a combination of explanations germane to a given topic coupled with discussions centered on actual federal court opinions. This indispensible reference: Provides straightforward explanations of patent law terminology, including "novelty" and "non-obviousness" Uses examples from both case law and real-world situations to illustrate aspects of intellectual property law that concern chemists Is appropriate for researchers across many disciplines who need a basic guide to patent law Includes a table of cases that lists pertinent chemical court cases The Chemist's Companion Guide to Patent Law imparts basic patent law knowledge in a breezy format that frees up time for working chemists and students by helping them stay out of the courtroom to focus their attention where it belongs-in the laboratory.
