Last year, our colleague Peter Youle wrote about the pitfalls of parameters in patent claims. Whilst small molecules are typically claimed using structural features and formulae, these are usually unsuitable for defining a polymer. Instead, parameters, such as the weight average molecular weight (Mw), are frequently used to characterise polymers.
Earlier this month, Marks & Clerk released its third annual AI Report which provides insights into the global AI landscape and highlights key patent trends. This report has continued to gain coverage in Digitalisation World, Financial IT, and Datacentre Solutions – three prominent publications in the technology and business world.
