A New Book on Chemical Patents
I wanted to mention a book I've received a review copy of recently: Writing Chemistry Patents and Intellectual Property: A Practical Guide. The description is accurate. It'll be most useful for people who don't have access to a lot of well-paid legal talent - or at least would like to get things into shape as much as possible before calling them in and starting the meter running. It goes into detail on what makes a valid application, what patent examiners are trained to look for, and how to draft an application that will stand the best chance of surviving scrutiny. It's not a replacement for a patent attorney - you're still going to need one - but it can keep you from wasting the time of one, or from spending your own money while doing so.
Note added for legal reasons: that's an Amazon affiliate link, meaning that Amazon will (without raising the price to you) rebate a small amount of each purchase you make to me - not just that book, but whatever else you might purchase at the same time. I promise to spend it on the sorts of riotous living that one can fund only through Amazon gift cards.
