Litigation Quality Patent PatentCast
EPISODE 30 - The Examiner Whisperer - Synthes v. Spinal Kinetics

In this episode of the Litigation Quality Patents® Podcast, claims are torn apart when the patent owner tries to stretch them too far to reach a competitor's product. Even when a patent discloses a groove in a plate, the patent owner can't always cover a product that has a hole in the plate, at least not in this medical device. Craige offers help by drawing lessons about written description - especially how a few minutes of quality thinking on the front end can make a patent either a boom or a bust.

Joining the conversation this week are Dr. John Leighton, associate attorney with Thompson Patent Law, and Richard Bragg, a patent attorney practicing in the Minneapolis area.
