About the Photonics Patents™ blog
The Photonics Patents™ blog is my attempt to document only a small fraction of the innovations and activity in the areas of optics and photonics by providing a bit of information regarding U.S. patents recently issued and U.S. federal cases in these areas.
My source for the newly-issued U.S. patents is the weekly list put out by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, and these posts will discuss a bit on the disclosed technology, including a representative figure and claim. When the mood strikes, I’ll use these patents as examples of relevant concepts of patent law and practice. I will also pass along various items of interest in the area of intellectual property and technical innovations. Going forward, I may broaden the Photonics Patents™ blog to point out interesting U.S. patent applications which have recently published but have not yet issued as U.S. patents.
Nothing in the Photonics Patents™ blog should be interpreted as legal advice, solicitation for legal work, or assertions regarding the scope or validity of the listed U.S. patents, by me or by anyone else at Knobbe Martens. My comments are solely my own, and are solely based on publicly-available information. In fact, I don’t think that I or anyone else at Knobbe Martens has had anything to do with most of the patents or cases that I’ll be discussing. The Photonics Patents™ blog just lists patents, technologies, and issues that I personally find interesting, and hopefully others will find them interesting as well.
