Time: 1pm ET

Restriction requirements are being made with increasing regularity by U.S. patent examiners, particularly in biotechnology and pharmaceutical applications. As a result, an applicant may be faced with the choice of accepting narrower patent coverage than that to which he would be entitled, or, alternatively, the increased cost and effort of prosecuting multiple applications to obtain coverage of the entire invention. On the other hand, restriction requirements also allow for separate patents on related inventions to be obtained free of the constraints of a terminal disclaimer.

In this webinar, we will provide an overview of:

  • Restriction practice
  • Common issues encountered when dealing with restriction requirements
  • Effective strategies for advancing the applicant’s goals in applications where restriction requirements are made

Presenter:

Eifion Phillips, PhD, Delaware
