In Managing Intellectual Property, Matt Rizzolo Examines Bipartisan Patent Examination and Quality Improvement Act of 2022
In a Managing Intellectual Property article, IP litigation partner Matt Rizzolo discussed the bipartisan Patent Examination and Quality Improvement Act of 2022 introduced by U.S. Senators Thom Tillis and Patrick Leahy.
Matt explains that recording examiner interviews, which are part of the prosecution history, can educate the public and litigators about the scope of claims and what they actually cover.
Litigators would want to know if examiners or applicants made claims during interviews that shed light on what certain terms meant.
