Detailing the intellectual-property aspects of biotechnology law - from initial identification and reporting through licensing - this comprehensive reference explains the rules, regulations and procedures typically encountered by researchers in the development of their innovations. Focusing on the fundamental legal concepts that should be understood by scientists, academicians and technicians working in the field, "Understanding Biotechnology Law": considers the role of the inventor in the preparation of a patent application; describes the patent application process from discovery of an invention to issuance of a patent; discusses the law governing ownership of laboratory discoveries and products; examines intellectual-property policies, research agreements, consulting agreements, and conflicts of interest; presents the rules for determining inventorship; reviews patent infringement laws, including claim interpretation, "literal infringement", and "infringement under the doctrine of equivalents"; and outlines modern license agreements, providing the principal terms encountered in biotechnology licenses. Written by authorities in the field, "Understanding Biotechnology Law" is a reference for molecular and cell biologists, microbiologists, virologists, bioprocess technologists, biochemists, food scientists and technologists, pharmacologists, and pharmacists.
