Join the Inventor Info Chat to learn about 35 U.S.C 102 and 103 rejection

Learn about 35 U.S.C 102 and 103 rejection at the next USPTO Inventor Info Chat webinar. Sign in on the day of the program.

Understanding how an examiner rejects based on 35 U.S.C 102 and 103 can give applicants a better idea of how to respond to the examiner’s office action by either arguing or making amendments to the claimed invention. This webinar will cover:

  • An explanation of lacking novelty/anticipation under USC 102
  • Understanding claim elements/limitations vs. claim breadth
  • Understanding obviousness under USC 103 rejection
  • The differences between Analogous Prior Art, Impermissible Hindsight, and Level of Ordinary Skill

You will have an opportunity to ask questions of our specialists during the event by emailing
