Litigation Quality Patent PatentCast
EPISODE 25 - The Examiner Whisperer - Skinmedica v Histogen

In this episode of the Litigation Quality Patents® Podcast, discussion concerns claim construction. Patent litigation is often won or lost in claim construction. The use of a single phrase or even a single word, can turn the tables for or against you. Today's case is a prime example because in a split decision, with the Chief Justice dissenting, the federal circuit reached for a narrow claim construction. Craige talks about how patent specifications can be made clear and unambiguous so to avoid expensive and unnecessary fights over claim construction, as seen in this battle.
